The Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation was honored to partner with the TCS NYC Marathon this November. We had a very successful outing in 2016 with our 7 runners raising almost $50,000!
We have received 5 charity spots from the New York Road Runners. We also encourage any individuals interested in participating to try to grab a slot in the lottery. The application window is open between January 17 and February 17, 2017. Here is the link: http://www.tcsnycmarathon.org/plan-your-race/run-in-2017
Our goal is to beat last year's total and hit $50,000 to provide scholarships to Special Operations soldiers, like Glen. Glen Doherty was a former Navy SEAL, killed in Benghazi, Libya when our American Consulate was attacked by terrorists. We established the Foundation to honor Glen, his love for life and dedication to this country.
We need YOU in November 2017! We are looking for marathon runners looking to support a military cause. Help us raise funds to provide current and former Special Ops soldiers an opportunity to transition to civilian life. It is also a fantastic way to say thank you to our “GDMF Scholars” for their service.
