Woodbridge, VA, October 29, 2013 - Belvoir Federal Credit Union supported the 2013 Army 10 Miler Race by sponsoring an employee to run on behalf of the Fisher House. Belvoir Federal’s Installation Liaison and Membership Development Officer, Sharon Leake, also took an active role in supporting marathon runners.

Belvoir Federal’s Real Estate Loan Specialist, Elsa Baughman finished the race in 1:52:25. In addition to running the race, Elsa set a fundraising goal of $500 that would go toward the Fisher House Program. Elsa exceeded her goal by 178%, which she attributes mainly to donations made by her co-workers at Belvoir Federal Credit Union.

Sharon Leake supported Ft. Belvoir and the Garrison Command by attending logistical meetings, supplying drinks to the Ft. Belvoir “Eagle Team,” and opening her home to eight reserve unit soldiers from the Kansas State Army 10 Miler Team. The reserve soldiers stayed with Sharon for the week of the race. Cadet Major Adam Rosendall stated, “We can’t thank Mr. and Mrs. Leake enough for letting us into their home and supporting our team to run in the race. And, to all future runners… Run fast, but don’t be last.”
