Rick Hermelin, a former active duty Marine jumped on his cross training running machine, the ElliptiGO, and in 100 days raised awareness and funds for the Semper Fi Fund,a 501(c)(3) nonprofit set up to provide immediate financial support for injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.
Rick’s one-man, self-supported adventure, as described on the Semper Fi Fund page, departed Marine Corps Recruit Depot at Parris Island, S.C. on March 23, 2012, and finished at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego, CA on Saturday, June 30, 2012.
The meaningful coast-to-coast finish aboard MCRD (Marine Corps Recruit Depot) commemorates Rick’s service in the United States Marine Corps, while also honoring the Semper Fi Fund, who will be on site to celebrate his finish.
As of this morning, according to Rick’s blog, the total of $10,622 was raised for injured veterans. Keep the donations coming. You can donate here. Thank you Rick for a great effort! You rock!
Love You More Than You Know supports the Semper Fi Fund, giving a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book to benefit our wounded veterans.
