Hundreds of Runners Came Out to Support Haul for Heroes 5K Run

Posted: Updated:

Four hundred runners, helping three different charities, and it started at the Bay County Court House early Saturday morning.

 

It was the inaugural running of the "Haul for Heroes" 5-k run. The race was postponed back on July 16th due to rain.

That was the date originally chosen to honor Carter Hess a local serviceman injured while serving in Afghanistan.

Saturday's event was organized by Carter's sister, Allison, to raise awareness of our wounded heroes.

"These solders give more than I could ever give and some people won't be willing to give I think the recovery is long and the support they need is endless and the more that we can do for them the better, I don't think that we can give back what they deserve," says Hess.

 

"Haul for Heroes" 5-k run raised $20,000 dollars for the Fisher House Foundation, K-9s for Warriors, and Warrior Beach Retreat Charities.
