Hey Athletes,

The first person featured for The Noir Tie Affair on Friday, March 2nd 2013 is Dawn Harper. She will be running the Boston Marathon on April 15th, 2013 and this is the reason why in her own words…

My charity – buildOn - helps break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through service and education in the U.S. and abroad.  
 
In the U.S., buildOn creates afterschool youth service programs for urban teens to lift up their communities and change the world through intensive community service.  95% of these students go to college.  Additionally, buildOn has built over 500 schools in Africa, Asia, and Central America.
 
The buildOn Boston Chapter has collaborated with Boston Public Schools to send high school students on a “Trek for Knowledge” in Nicaragua.  buildOn’s Treks for Knowledge give American students the opportunity to travel to a developing country to help build these schools, stay with a local indigenous family, and learning local customs.  All funds raised through the Boston Marathon team will support the Trek for Knowledge in Nicaragua.

 Noir is the French word for “black”.

From the Army Times website…

A soldier from Billings was killed by a suicide bomber last weekend while on patrol in Afghanistan, his family said.  The family of Sgt. Jeremiah Wittman, 26, said he died Saturday. The Pentagon had not announced his death as of Tuesday afternoon.  “He told me he was going out on a mission for three days and he would be safe,” his mother, Cynthia Church, told The Billings Gazette on Monday. “He said: ‘Don’t worry, Mom. They don’t scare me. I’m a super soldier.’ ”  Wittman, a member of the 12th Infantry Regiment, was serving his second deployment in the Middle East.  His wife, Karen, and their 3-year-old daughter, Miah, were living in South Carolina with her family while Wittman was deployed. Another daughter, 7-year-old Arieana, lives with her grandmother in Wyoming.  “He only had two months left over there and was so looking forward to coming home and being with his girls,” said Wittman’s aunt, Kari Dvorak.  Robert Wittman said he has a picture of his son with five of his Army buddies, and four of them are now dead.  “He kept calling me every week and saying, ‘I’m still alive. I’m still alive,’ ” Robert Wittman said. “He just kept losing friends.”  Wittman attended elementary and middle school in Billings before moving with his mother to Powell, Wyo., for a time. He graduated from Trapper Creek High in Darby and enlisted in the Army in 2004.  Wittman is also survived by sisters Charity and Jenell.  “He had a huge heart,” Jenell Wittman said. “No matter what, he could always make you laugh or smile.”

RIP hero,
