Support Our Troops

We came across Braxton via Twitter (@Re_return). Let’s see if we can help him meet his goal of $1500 and his commitment to running the Marine Corps Marathon for a third consecutive year! We’re cheering for ya here at TriCity New Balance!

MCM 2009, circa mile 20. The smile might be a little bit forced.

Hi everyone! It’s almost that time of year….I have committed to running the Marine Corps Marathon for a third consecutive year and will once again be fundraising for a fantastic organization, USO. Please help me reach my fundraising goal of $1,500. I have been fortunate to travel to Germany, Dubai, Korea, and Okinawa and have seen firsthand the positive impact that our amazing employees and volunteers can have on our troops and their families. They really know how to get the most bang for our bucks! This year, I have this crazy idea that I’m going to attempt to qualify for the Boston Marathon with a new personal record under 3 hours, 10 minutes. Can I do it? You’ll have to come out to the course on race day to find out….I would love to see you out there!
