Fisher House Marathan Jam Posts $15,000 Challenge

Fisher HouseJohn Santa, founder of the Marathon Jam campaign to raise money for the Fisher House, happily announced that they have broken $12,000 for the Fort Bragg Fisher House. Now the question is, can they break $13,000 or, do they dare to dream for that $15,000 mark? Yes. Not only can they dream but, your contributions can help them reach their goal. While the official Marathon Jam was held February 22nd, that doesn't mean you still can't contribute and, better yet, plan for next year too.
