THE STORY:

Caroline Hidalgo wrote -

History of Run, Ranger, Run:

In 2013, 3rd Ranger Battalion Veteran Cory Smith highlighted the difficult transition so many veterans face by making a very difficult, public and personal transition as he ran home from Columbus, GA to Indianapolis, IN. During his 28-day 565 mile journey he helped bring attention and awareness to the struggle many veterans faces as the transition from Soldier to civilian and leave the military.

Veterans continue to battle record high levels of unemployment, under-employment,  homelessness and suicide.  The most recent Department of Labor Statistics from July 2015 show Global War on Terror veterans are 37% more likely to be unemployed than a person who never served and two times as more likely to be unemployed than a Desert Storm era Veteran.  The VA reports twenty two veterans take their own lives daily, and active duty suicides have averaged one per day.

Our team will be running a combined total of 565 miles this month to raise funds for Gallant Few, a charity that helps vets, specifically Rangers, transitioning out of the military and aims to reduce underemploymebt and homelessness of these Ranger vets. As spouses of current Rangers this charity and its mission are especially important to us and we are excited about helping them raise awareness and funds.
