Configure Martin Park runs local marathon in 48.5 pounds of gear and raises $3,300 for the Permission To Start Dreaming Foundation!

We just can’t say enough to thank Martin Park, a 24-year-old former active duty Marine and now a reservist. Not only did he run his first marathon (the Tacoma City Marathon) wearing 48.5 pounds of gear and a Race For A Soldier shirt, but he raised $3,300 dollars in the process to donate to the Permission To Start Dreaming Foundation!

Here’s an excerpt from The News Tribune:

It was the first marathon for 24-year-old Martin Park, and he was running for more than himself. He was raising money to help find solutions for soldiers affected by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
