THE STORY:

Elizabeth Flowers wrote -

Jason Walker is running 250km across the harsh terrain of the Atacama Desert to inspire people to raise money for severely wounded veterans. The 250km, or 155 miles, will be completed in 7 days.  

Jason is fortunate to have come out of 11 years of service, including 4 deployments, unscathed. It is a privilege to be able to compete in a fundraising race like this.  However, many veterans were injured in the war since 9/11 and need help to become active again.  All the money we raise goes to the Phoenix Patriot Foundation, which helps severely wounded veterans take back control of their lives through helping them complete journeys like these two:
