Christopher Keen – Cooperstown Marathon

Christopher Keen – Cooperstown Marathon

This June I will be running the Cooperstown marathon. While you would like to think training to run 26.2 miles is enough motivation I figured I would need something else to work towards to ensure I keep it going. While there are many causes close to my heart those that know me best understand how much I support our armed forces. As a teacher at Manhasset High School I have witnessed the great work the Lead the Way fund does in honor of Sgt. James Regan, former Manhasset resident, who was killed by an IED in Northern Iraq while serving as a member of the Army Rangers in 2007. While I never met Sgt. Regan it is stories like his that make me proud to call myself an American. Sgt. Regan is a true hero and I hope to raise money to help the great work his family is doing in his honor.  To learn more about the Lead the Way fund visit



Hello! My name is Tim Cole. I will be entering a canoe/kayak race from July 19-22. The race goes from Kansas City to St. Charles in the St. Louis area. The race will be 340 miles long! Help me out and let’s see how much we can raise for our Rangers! RANGERS LEAD THE WAY!

Please joing me in supporting the Army Ranger Lead the Way Fund throughout the next 10 months as I will be competing in numerous endurance events ranging from 10 milers to the IRONMAN triathlon distances.

LTWF was established in honor of Sgt. James Regan. Jimmy was a Chaminade High School and Duke Lacrosse alumnus assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment where tragically he was KIA in Northern Iraq in February of 2007.

This is my 4th year involved with Lead the Way and has been nothing short of an incredible and humbling journey through the cause and more importantly the amazing people I’ve had the pleasure of working with along the way.  I’m very proud to be associated with this group and it is a non profit that will always remain close to my heart.

All fundraising throughout these events will support disabled U.S. Army Rangers, the families of Rangers who have passed away, as well as those who are currently serving in harm’s way.

Schedule is below, your support and motivation is always much appreciated.
