Carlsbad, CA – On January 22nd, athletes with the Semper Fi Fund will be participating in the Tri-City Medical Center Carlsbad Marathon and Half thanks to a generous donation provided by NRG West of Carlsbad, California.
Once again, NRG is partnering with the Fund to provide 13 complimentary race slots for wounded, injured, or ill Marines and Sailors, an Expo booth, and a generous donation at the end of the race. NRG staff will make up the remainder of the slots to create a team of 20 total runners in support the Semper Fi Fund mission.
In 2011, Semper Fi Fund athletes ran the Carlsbad Marathon, highlighted as the official “Hero of the Marathon.” Our 2012 Team of Heroes includes a Sergeant who though paralyzed and blind, will take on the road through a team effort of Marines and Corpsman pushing him in a specially adapted chair. Other runners consist of wounded, ill or injured Marines and Sailors, spouses, and the staff who support them.
Good luck runners and thank you NRG!
