High Schooler Runs Marathon, Raises $12,000 Toward Group Home for Homeless Veterans
by Louise Bevan

A group residence for homeless veterans in Colorado opened its doors on July 11, thanks, in huge part, to a massive fundraiser by a high-school student marathon runner.

The runner, 17-year-old Michael Ferrara of Ringoes, New Jersey, ran the 26.2 miles from Sandy Hook to Spring Lake alongside veterans supporters Team RWB (Red, White, and Blue). Crossing the finish line in 4 hours and 22 minutes, he was able to raise and donate $12,000 to Houses for Warriors, a Colorado-based nonprofit helping homeless and at-risk veterans access emergency housing and housing resources.

The nonprofit put the teen’s donation toward housing nine homeless veterans. Mike and his father, Ray Ferrara, 50, attended the opening ceremony in Denver.

“When I was running the marathon, I didn’t really understand the impact that the fundraiser would have until I was actually standing inside of that home,” Michael told The Epoch Times in an interview. “It was just an amazing, amazing feeling.”

During a house tour, the pair even noticed a few items they had purchased themselves, including a huge American flag.

Ray, a vice president of engineering at New Jersey’s MTF Biologics, described the location as a “nice, quaint, small neighborhood,” with a lot of space and multiple bedrooms that will house up to two veterans per bedroom. The home, according to Ray, was the ideal spot for veterans to recuperate, with a house manager on-site.

“Within a couple of weeks, nine people are going to be off the streets. Just amazing,” Ray marveled.
