Inspired by a presentation on the Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) during Career Day at BRMS , eighth graders Anna deCone, Tina Compagnino, and Janet Beshai took to heart the words he (Travis) spoke before leaving for his final deployment, “IF NOT ME, THEN WHO…”
THE TRAVIS MANION FOUNDATION (TMF) EMPOWERS VETERANS AND THE FAMILIES OF FALLEN HEROES TO DEVELOP CHARACTER IN FUTURE GENERATIONS. IN 2007, 1ST LT TRAVIS MANION (USMC) WAS KILLED IN IRAQ WHILE SAVING HIS WOUNDED TEAMMATES.
Anna, Tina, and Janet decided to fund their own lemonade stand and sell at BRMS sporting events to raise money for BRMS families that need financial assistance for field trips. In their first outing, they raised $100.00. They plan on having another stand this week.
