THE STORY:

Fallon Peplinski wrote -

I'm excited to share that our team will be running the Eau Claire 5k/Half Marathon/Full Marathon to raise money for the DAV in memory of my father, Dr. William James Peplinski. My father dedicated his life to serving others. He was a Captain in the U.S. Army and earned numerous commendations, including four Purple Hearts and the Silver Star. After being medically discharged from the Army due to the injuries he sustained in Vietnam, he went to medical school and became a doctor. He practiced through the VA so he could help disabled veterans like himself. He passed away on March 4th, 2016, and we would like to honor his memory by running the Eau Claire Half Marathon to benefit veterans. The money we raise will be donated in my father's name to the DAV (Disabled American Veterans). The DAV is an outstanding organization that provides support and assistance to veterans and their families. Through this race, we hope to bring awareness to the DAV and its cause, as well as raise money to aid those the DAV helps. For more information about the DAV, visit dav.org.
