THE STORY:

In 2012, 3rd Ranger Battalion veteran US Army Corporal Cory Smith, having deployed to combat twice, experienced having friends killed and wounded and with his own marriage failing decided to highlight the difficult journey home many soldiers have leaving the Army by undergoing a very public and very difficult journey home himself.  Cory decided to run 565 miles in 28 days with holding his daughter Elleigh in his arms the end goal of his run.

In 2013, 3rd Ranger Battalion combat veteran Cory Smith highlighted the difficult transition so many veterans face by making a very difficult, public and personal transition – he ran home! Columbus, GA to Indianapolis, IN – 565 miles. Now you can join Cory to make a difference right where you are, and bring awareness to the difficult transition many of our honored military veterans face.

The Event

Teams of up to ten individuals pledge to walk, run and/or ride bicycles a combined total of 565 miles in the month of February (usually 28 days) raising funds for GallantFew while increasing awareness for the veteran transition issues.
