In February, I had joined Team Red, White and Blue, and had been to a couple of events before seeing the Run As One get posted. Even though I was running the Shamrock Shuffle, I wanted to run this as well.
The sad truth is that every day, 22 service members that fought so bravely and sacrificed so much lose their own fight. The run was to get more awareness out there — the RWB link does a great job of explaining it.
It was an incredible experience, and great to see members of all the organizations there. Please take a few minutes to read the links and do what you can to help decrease the number… hopefully one day down to zero.
