Why is the challenge “58 miles”? In 1982 theVietnam Veterans Memorialwas dedicated in Washington, D.C., inscribed with the names of 57,939 members of U.S. armed forces who had died or were missing as a result of the war. Over the following years, additions to the list have brought the total past 58,200.
The organization for the Run Fierce ‘Military Series – Vietnam Veterans 5K/10K/58 Mile Challenge’ virtual race was chosen by my father…A Vietnam Veteran that has battled the effects of Agent Orange. He chose this organization because of all they do to help the Vietnam Veterans and their families.
The ‘Vietnam Veterans of America Organization’!The ‘Vietnam Veterans of America Organization has been helping or Vietnam Veteran heroes and their families for 42+ years!
