This is why I run...it was a single moment. I looked at this young mans grandmother, saw the taps bag she was holding and looked into his eyes and simply asked him if he wanted to run for his Uncle. We cannot run away the pain these families carry but we can help them carry it for one mile. So Jon Vedia, Laurie Dibold King, Sara Knauss, Mark Mease, and myself helped him run. We talked about what he did with the Uncle he loved and we invited him to run next year with us.
This is the second State Run I will help with this year but look at this young man and do not think of us....we are Servant Runners simply completely a task that must be completed. If you cannot run please support us in Virginia
Join Virginia Run for the Fallen as we blaze a tribute trail from Ft Story to Arlington Cemetery and raise awareness for the remembrance of our Virginia fallen heroes and their families. Let's make a difference, together!
