Ranger Rally before the Race

October 8, 2016 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm


Ranger Rally before the Race

Are you a Ranger coming to DC for the Army Ten-Miler?  Do you live in the area and need a lift in spirit that can only come from hanging out with fellow Rangers?

Whether you are coming to town for the Army Ten-Miler or live in the area, on October 8th join Army Rangers, current and past, for an evening of carb loading (beer) and fun the night before the race.  The Army Ranger Lead the Way Fund, the preeminent charity in support of the 75th Ranger Regiment, will be the host for this event and any funds raised will go to the Fund to support wounded Rangers.

For those unfamiliar with the charity, Lead The Way Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established to raise funds in support of disabled U.S. Army Rangers and the families of Rangers who have died, have been injured or are currently serving in harm’s way around the world. Lead The Way Fund, Inc. will provide spouses and children of deceased, disabled or active duty Rangers with assistance for health and wellness programs and other services determined to be vital to the family’s well-being, beyond what the government can offer.  One of the ways that the Fund raises money is through supporters who raise money running races like the Army Ten-Miler. 

If you are looking for a bib for the race and are willing to raise at least $750 for the Fund, there are still slots available on the Fund’s team.  If interested in running contact the Fund before August 19.

On October 8th, at 1800 the Highline Restaurant in Crystal City, Virginia will be the Rally Point for Rangers to celebrate the work that the Fund is doing in support of wounded Rangers and Rangers in need.  Whether you are running for the Fund, running on your own or with another team, or not running at all, if you are a Ranger come out and share in the evening with fellow Rangers and their families and hear stories of triumph and recovery thanks to the great work the Fund is doing for Rangers.

The cost of the evening is $45 and will include food and an open bar. Tickets are limited and are available through this LINK. These tickets will sell out so don’t wait until the last minute to get your ticket!

DSCN1719In addition to a great dinner surrounded by Rangers, a fellow Ranger’s wife has donated her motorcycle for raffle for the evening. We will be raffling off a 2003 Harley-Davidson XLH Sportster 883 Hugger Anniversary Addition.* This beautiful Anniversary Edition Harley Davidson is in perfect condition with less than 5000 miles.  Tickets are available through the same LINK as the dinner tickets.

You do not have to be present to win, so even if you can’t make it to dinner please buy raffle tickets for a chance to win this beautiful motorcycle and to support wounded Rangers through the Fund.  The winner will be drawn on October 8th at the dinner.

For any questions about the dinner, or if interested in sponsoring, please contact the organizer for the evening Ranger Lee Dougherty at (202) 888-2104 or via email at LDougherty@mft-law.com
