SGT BAM FOUNDATION CHARITY RUN

$1,559 of $6,500 goal

Raised by 29 people in 5 months
THIS RUN IS NOT ABOUT ME...

I will complete this run to honor a friend of mine who will not be here to cheer me on.  His name was ALEX BAHMANDEJI and he served along side me during my last deployment to Iraq in 2007.  You see “BAM” as we all called him returned to the states after our deployment but he never really made it home. 
WE LOST HIM IN DECEMBER OF 2014.  
His mother Maggie found a way to keep his light alive by founding THE SGT BAM FOUNDATION. 
This foundation exists to support our military veterans living with PTSD, to serve our VETERANS and their FAMILIES when in need, and to HONOR those we have LOST (like BAM himself) so they will NEVER be forgotten.
The 3TV PHOENIX HALF MARATHON takes place in Phoenix, Arizona just ONE WEEK before VETERANS DAY so it is the perfect opportunity to not just SAY thank you but to SHOW your support for our veterans.

To learn more about the organization you can visit the SGT BAM FOUNDATION website at www.sgtbamfoundation.org  

Yout can post on their facebook page at www.facebook.com/sgtbamfoundation/

BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY YOU CAN SUPPORT MY CHARITY RUN TO BENEFIT THE SGT BAM FOUNDATION BY DONATING TO MY GOFUNDME CAMPAIGN

I hope you will help me as I honor the memory and service of my friend, brother, and fellow soldier... 

ALL GAVE SOME…SOME GAVE ALL…

WON’T YOU GIVE TOO?

We ran this campaign from Independence Day through Veteran's Day as a way of honoring not only SGT Bam himself but also all of my brothers and sisters at arms who have served and continue to do so. The run went well - I finished the Phoenix Half Marathon in 2.5 hours. Thank you to all who donated.
