Help Me Help Vets in Need!

Jennifer Murphy

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for Team HFOT! I have committed to raising funds & awareness for Homes for Our Troops, a 501(c)(3) organization that builds specially adapted homes for severely injured veterans. HFOT builds homes that provide freedom & independence for our most severely wounded veterans to live comfortably.

Over the past 12 years, Warfighters have taught me so much about loyalty, resilience, and optimism in the face of difficult circumstances. I'm honored to have an opportunity to give back. To raise funds for this great cause, I'm participating in the Disney Princess Half-Marathon on Feb 26. I chose this event because it combines 3 things I strongly dislike: running, getting up ridiculously early in the morning, and dressing up like a princess. Such is my dedication to helping disabled vets.

My goal is to raise $2500 for this great cause. To sweeten the deal, I offer the following:

If I raise $1000, I will participate dressed as a Disney Princess of my choosing. Hint: It's probably gonna be either Princess Leia or Marion from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

If I raise $2000, I will go dressed as Tinkerbell, complete with tutu, glitter and magic wand. (Hopefully the pixie dust will make me go faster.)

If I raise $2500, I will go dressed as a Disney Princess of YOUR CHOOSING! That's right, I'll poll my donors and the princess with the most votes wins! This is your big chance to make me look uncomfortable and ridiculous for 13.1 miles in the Florida sun. For anyone I may have pissed off over the past 40 years, this is a tremendous, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

I also vow to appropriately document the event in real time on social media if I do end up in costume.

Please help me raise funds for severely disabled vets!

Jen

This looks like an INCREDIBLE organization. Thank you so much for doing this. I wish I could donate more, but I want you to know how much your work is appreciated and, well, I can't wait to see you in your princess outfit! :)

Good luck, Jen! FYI, 50 bucks is for the run, and 50 bucks is for how terrible you will feel the next day. :-)
