My name is Christina Briones and Iím a happily single mother of three, two sons Cesar and Felix and my daughter, Alisa. Iíve always been a runner and welcomed any challenges throughout my life. I taught my children to never give up and to push yourself harder in order to achieve any goals in life.
My son Felix definitely didnít let any challenges stop him. He embraced his four years at Bonanza Highschool by playing sports like volleyball and baseball. He even became Vice President of The Key Club. He devoted his time by volunteering at school events and at local marathons here in Vegas, like The Rock and Roll Marathon. Once he turned 18, he enlisted into the MARINES and kept very busy as a poolee. He graduated from Bonanza highschool in 2018 and shortly after left to boot camp in November 2018. Three months later on February 22, 2019 he graduated from boot camp at MCRD as a MARINE. I am beyond proud of him! Heís currently at SOI training at Camp Pendleton.
Being both a mother and a MoM has given me a strong sense of gratitude and inspiration to push myself to help and to give back to all those serving and whom had served. Iím running to show my appreciation for their loyalty and dedication to defend this country. Iím hoping we can all challenge ourselves and join together to help our MARINES. Thank you, Semper Fi!
