Thanks from the Mote family


Thanks to a wonderful community. Last year, two fundraising events were held in honor of our son, Staff Sgt. Sky Mote, and his fallen comrades: The MARSOC Project Black at the Leadman Triathlon in Phoenix, Ariz., and Ride 430 in Scottsdale, Ariz. In both of these events, wounded and active servicemen participated.

The local community responded and over $20,000 was raised. The first annual Night With Heroes Event at Toby Keith’s Restaurant was a great success. Some of the members of Sky’s team were present, putting a face on who you were supporting. Other heroes of the community who had served and families of local fallen servicemen were in attendance as well.

Thank you to all the businesses and members of the community who contributed in 2013 to benefit the following organizations: The MARSOC Foundation, Ride 430, The Semper Fi Fund and Knights of Heroes. We are so grateful for your support. You have truly changed lives. Sky was adamant that the Marines take care of their own. It is through these organizations that we can accomplish this mission for Marines and other service members.
