The Myrtle Beach 1/2 Marathon is tomorrow February 14th 2009. If your in the area please come and support our run. We need all of the support we can get; 13.1 miles is a long way. We run for Team Dykeman proudly. Tomorrow we have 9 runners participating.
I want to THANK everyone for their support for the Scholarship. We have had a good start, but we are not finished. To date we have raised $ 5,800 and our efforts, with all of your help, continue. In the Fall, we will be awarding our first scholarship in Captain Phil’s name.
We are excited to carry the name of Captain Philip Dykeman USMC who was killed in action (Iraq) on June 26, 2008. Only 8 months ago. He is survived by his wife and three children. ( age 10 and twins age 6) — MY children are the same age.
A special Thank You to Rusty Sneeden. He has taken it upon himself to be active in supporting Team Dykeman. Not only is he running in the Race Saturday morning, but he is spreading the word about the scholarship. Rusty, you truly are a good friend and a Great Person.
We are not Marines, but we run for one!
