The Running of the Cows

 This month 339 Team Fisher House runners joined thousands in the DC area to participate in both the Army Ten-Miler and Marine Corps Marathon. Champ the Cow, the team’s mascot, was at the start line cheering them on, so were hundreds of Fisher House volunteers clad in cow-hats, and ringing cowbells along both race courses. They come out for a variety of reasons, from having stayed at a Fisher House to just being passionate about our mission. But one thing is clear: they are a team and we are all a part of that team. It was clear that many other participants had been touched by the mission and the comradery exerted by the Team Fisher House Runners, Champ, and the volunteer Spirit Squads.
