I will be out taking pictures at the Survival Dash 10K run along and around Crissy Field on Saturday, August 18th.  For my distance running friends, this is a nice short run for a change.

The run is put on to help support the Semper Fi Fund to provide financial support for injured members of the Armed Forces.  I hope our government does not forget about the service members who get injured in one way or another but I am sure every little bit of extra helps.

Join us for a small race with great volunteers and the proceeds go to a great cause.  Hopefully the sun will come out and I can get some good pictures.

Update from from the Survival Dash race director:

I’ve made a 15% discount code, “alamedarunners,” that you’re welcome to add to the site. It expires on 8/15 at 5pm.

Concerning the Semper Fi Fund, they work on covering costs that the military doesn’t (adaptive housing/transportation for those in wheelchairs, specialized and adaptive equipment at home like software programs and visual aids). The coolest part, in my opinion, is Team Semper Fi. They encourage teamwork and rapid rehabilitation by providing coaches, specialized sporting equipment, team uniforms, and travel expenses for recovering service members and their families.
