A letter sent to the Governor and County Executive's offices describes Hamrick as "a selfless individual who works tirelessly behind the scenes and in front for the Fisher House organization." The presentation was made during Hamrick's 7th Annual Bluegrass Marathon Jam on Feb. 27, proclaimed "Neil Hamrick Day" by Hogan. Representatives from the County Executive's Office, Knights of Columbus and Fisher House Foundation were also in attendance and acknowledged Hamrick's contributions.

Chapel Hill Marathon Jam Raises $18,000

John Santaby John Santa
I am VERY proud to announce the Chapel Hill 2014 Marathon Jam has raised $18,000 for the Ft Bragg Fisher House. One of the reasons our total is so high this year is because we have money coming to us from the Naples, Florida Marathon Jam (many thanks to Team Leaders Jim Bova and Kathy Bova) and the Monrovia, Liberia, Africa, Marathon Jam (Team Leader Vincent Yznaga.)

Fisher House Marathan Jam Posts $15,000 Challenge

Fisher HouseJohn Santa, founder of the Marathon Jam campaign to raise money for the Fisher House, happily announced that they have broken $12,000 for the Fort Bragg Fisher House. Now the question is, can they break $13,000 or, do they dare to dream for that $15,000 mark? Yes. Not only can they dream but, your contributions can help them reach their goal. While the official Marathon Jam was held February 22nd, that doesn't mean you still can't contribute and, better yet, plan for next year too.
