an iraq war veteran's race for the fallen

I recently heard from a reader named Robert, who's trying to rally up some support for a good cause... Robert Seo is a Korean American veteran of the Iraq war who lost a friend while deployed. He quit his job on Wall Street to move to South American to volunteer and to train for the Ironman Triathlon. Now that's the life!

In conjunction with the race, he's raising funds for the Jericho Project, which helps homeless veterans get back on their feet. Robert is hoping to raise enough funds to have a part of one of Jericho's buildings named after his buddy Gregory MacDonald, a fellow Marine of B Company, 4th Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, who died in Iraq.

The problem is, he's run into a wall for donations. He's currently looking for donors and sponsors. 100% of the funds go directly to the Jericho Project -- maybe you can help out. Learn more about Robert's story here, and follow along with Robert's efforts to train and fundraise on his blog: Race for the Fallen.
