|An absolutely amazing 2 day event with over 3,000 participants, spectators and volunteers. Hurricane Isaac stayed far enough away to allow us to hold the event, but close enough to give us some great overcast skies which helped with keeping the heat away.
Special thanks to John & Bryant from the Winthrop Town Center for being such incredible sponsors and working just as hard as anyone of us from the T.A.M.P.A. organization to insure that this event was a complete success. We could not have done it without them.
Over 1600 photos were taken by Faithful Joy Photos. They have done an amazing job and we would like to thank them for their support and generosity.
SHADOW RUN FOR T.A.M.P.A.'s R4F IN AFGHANISTAN
So many amazing things to report about our event, but this has to be one of the biggest compliments we could have received. I know that our Gold Star Families will especially find this touching beyond words!!! How amazing to know that our Marines stationed in Afghanistan were running 'with us' during the event. We are truly reaching ALL over the world:
