I am absolutely thrilled by the response of Kadena Air Force Base's Jog-a-Thon.

Over 800 service members and civilians participated in the event. Five service members ran over FIFTY miles in just 24-hours. All in all, more than $30,000 was raised to benefit the Gary Sinise Foundation.

None of this would have been possible without the amazing efforts of Chip Steitz. Thank you, Chip, for your tireless commitment to this project and to the troops.

With the success of this jog-a-thon, Chip is hoping to inspire other bases and installations to participate in similar fundraisers.

Once again, our sincerest thanks to Chip and to all those who participated in this marvelous fundraiser. Because of you, we'll be able to forward our mission to honor and serve our nation's defenders and their families.

Best wishes,
-Judy Otter
Executive Director, Gary Sinise Foundation
