“On your mark… Get set…”
Soldiers’ Angel Marie Bonley will be spreading her Angel “running wings" in April 2010. And she’s starting in a big way!
Marie, who became an Angel just last September and hails from England, will be running in the London Marathon on April 25 in honor of two organizations: the United Kingdom charity Children with Leukemia is sponsoring her, and she will also be running in honor of Soldiers’ Angels. While Children with Leukemia has guaranteed her a space in the marathon and she is offering her wonderful support and donations to them, she has asked her friends and family living in Denver to sponsor her for Soldiers’ Angel as well. Anyone and everyone is welcome to contribute to Marie’s efforts on behalf of Soldiers’ Angels.
Angel Marie is on the Letter Writing Team, has adopted two heroes, and is the unofficial Angel to three more plus an entire unit. Even with all she is doing for the troops, Marie has is giving back even more in support of her heroes by running in the marathon. “I have been in Soldiers’ Angel since Sept 09 and it has completely changed my life,” she says. “I have made some amazing friends and have not stopped smiling since I joined.”
People inside and outside the UK can help by making a donation of any amount at www.firstgiving.com/mariebonley. Not only will donations be going to a great cause, but they will give Marie the strength and morale boost she needs to make sure she completes the marathon.
