I’ve written about my connection to the military before. I’m also jealous of the fact that “mainstream” athletes get to contribute to causes they care about through their own charities. I want a piece of that! And I’d love to feel pride in performances not only because I still love what I do, but because of the knowledge that I might contribute to something more important than just me. I’m so grateful to have been surrounded by excellent representatives of American Military through a career in athletics, and I’d like to show that via a donation campaign. While I don’t have personal experience with the Semper Fi Fund, multiple service members I’ve asked say that they’re the best as far as actually contributing to the welfare of American veterans. I’m really impressed by their website, mission, the fact that they’re female-founded, and the positive impact they’ve had on people I care about. With every meter I throw, you have the chance to contribute to this fantastic organization that tirelessly works to support those who protect us in multiple ways! Pledge to donate per meter I throw in my next two meets, or contribute a flat fee, but please help me represent something powerful on the runway: The healing of our American veterans and their loved ones through the good work of the Semper Fi Fund.
