Former Marine to Run Across America to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project
“I’m going to stick my foot in the bay in Coos Bay, Oregon and 100 days later end up in Baltimore, Md. at the Inner Harbor. I’m running across the country for 100 days, 3,500 miles, rain sleet, snow or hail. Whatever we have to do to get across the country,” said Jamie Summerlin.
Jamie and his wife, Tiffany, are both former Marines and the idea to run for the Wounded Warrior Project seemed fitting.
“I just started thinking, what can I do to give back? I’m very fortunate to be able to be out here running and doing it injury free. So, why not make something of it? They’ve helped some friends of ours out in a great way and I’ve read a lot about them. I know some folks involved with them and being former military members, it just seemed to hit home,” added Summerlin.
On March 26, 2012, Jamie’s feet will hit the trail and there is no turning back.
