I would like to take this moment to thank two of our early supporters of Operation Awakening II. Renee Martin and Lee Ann Starkley. Both of these supporters have stepped up and written checks to cover our operation expenses without batting an eyelash. Renee has been a dedicated supporter of Operation Awakening and the Semper Fi Fund since 2012.
Both of these women have gone above and beyond the call for support. I cannot thank the both of you two ladies enough. Without your support my operation would be weeks behind. Now, we can spring board forward into kick-starting this project.
Both of you understand what Semper Fi means, and I salute you for that.
About Operation Awakening II
Operation Awakening II, “The Long Patrol” is an event born from the success of the original Operation Awakening. During this first event, a 3,325 mile trans-America bicycle ride, Tim Tuomey raised $55,243 for the Semper Fi Fund. For Operation Awakening II “The Long Patrol”, Tim has set a goal of raising $100,000 in contributions for the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund. This time Tim’s fundraising event will have him trekking 2,600 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail!
