Hello everyone- To achieve my goal of becoming a Marine officer, I know that the leadership side of my persona needs some improvement. The only 'official' leadership I have held to this point (sophomore year) is team co-captain of the varsity cross country team. As team co-captain me and my classmate explained the routes we would run, showed the freshmen and new members how to safely and properly work out in the weight room, walked the team through the course prior to a meet, and led pre-meet prayers. Recently, someone we are aquainted with suffered a brain aneurysm. They are currently in a coma far away from home and it will be a long road to recovery. The costs are expected to be extensive. My question is this: would organizing a 5-k be a good example of leadership? With the help of my friends and other adults, I am planning to organize a 5-k run/walk and 1-mile fun run, with half of the profits going to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation and the other half going to the family to help cover medical costs. We plan on keeping nothing. Would this be a good example of leadership? And does anyone have any advice on planning such an event? Any help is much appreciated!
