The Run Fierce Team has been featuring each branch of the United States Armed Forces over the past several months. These races will be helping our veterans of all branches by giving part of the proceeds of each race to a designated veteran’s and families assistance program.
This Desert Storm 43 Mile Challenge is dedicated to the men and women of all branches of the armed forces that served during Operation Desert Storm.
Why 43 miles?
During the Gulf War…Operation Desert Storm launched on January, 17th, 1991and lasted for 43 days ending on February, 28th, 1991.
Why Never Forget The 383?
Most of our US Troops made it home after Operation Desert Storm came to an end, including me. There were 383 US Armed Forces men/women and American civilians that never made it back to their families. Never Forget!
