Thanks for visiting my Manchester Half Marathon fundraising page!
On November 10, 2019 I’ll be honoring the brave service men and women AND our first responders who defend our freedom by running the Manchester Half Marathon.
My friend Cheri Hayes nephew, SPC Micah Chizever, US Army Airborne, died by suicide July, 2019. I would like to honor her, Micah's family and all our Veteran's who are struggling by dedicating this fundraiser to Micah and to all our Veterans who are struggling.
All proceeds of the race will benefit Veterans Count, the philanthropic arm of Easterseals Military & Veterans Services (MVS), which provides financial assistance for services for veterans, service members and their families when no other resource is available.
"It's about how we treat our veterans every single day of the year. It's about making sure they have the care they need and the benefits that they've earned when they come home. It's about serving all of you as well as you've served the United States of America."

Sunday, November 10, 2019 marks the 13th annual running of the Manchester Marathon. The marathon is a moderately challenging Boston Qualifier that takes runners on a scenic trip through the historic mill district of the Granite State’s largest city. Runners in the full and half marathon will enjoy a run that includes fabulous views of the Queen City, surrounding areas, and beautiful fall foliage. Mark your calendars and join us for the 13th Annual Manchester Marathon, Half Marathon, 5k, and Relays on Sunday!
Veterans Count, the philanthropic arm of Easterseals NH Military & Veterans Services (MVS), provides critical and timely financial assistance and services when no other resource is available to veterans, service members and their families, to ensure their dignity, health and overall well-being.
Veterans Count continues to ensure that 90% of every net dollar raised is spent to provide services and grow resources for NH veterans, service members and their families.
In 2007, Veterans Count was developed in partnership with Easterseals NH (ESNH), the NH National Guard, and the NH Dept. of Health and Human Services. The program provides services and resources to veterans of all eras and their families. MVS Care Coordinators work with individuals and families to create a care plan toward self-sufficiency. Since ESNH launched the program, over 14,000 individuals have been served. Philanthropic dollars, totaling more than $3.7 million, have been distributed to provide financial support for food, utilities, housing, transportation, fuel, and vehicle repair, and more!
