Last Sunday in Olathe, Kansas over 300 runners from 20 states and Canada ran in the 2011 Patriots’ Run.
Last Sunday at Bagram airfield in Afghanistan, 4000 soldiers swapped their combat boots for running shoes to participate in a Patriots’ Run of their own. Though thousands of miles apart, these two groups were drawn together to commemorate the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
A member of the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? circle helped make this possible. Andrew Wilson, extraordinary husband, father, franchise owner and former solider committed $10,000.00 of his own money to ensure that the run overseas would take place. Take a second to watch the story, covered by Fox News 4.
