Submitted by Hoddle & AssociatesRun with a Soldier honors service men and women and was conceived and planned by Olympia native Brian Hoddle.November 8 and 9, 2014 has been declared National Run with A Soldier Day in America, by USA Track and Field, the national governing body for track and field, running and race walking in America. Locally, The Evergreen State College has decided to host a 5K on November 9, 2014 on their Olympia, campus where the public can run/walk right along with soldiers who are active or retired. This is a great event to show our support for our military men and women locally and is just 1 months away. Click here for more information. Bryan Hoddle of Olympia, a Tenino Middle School Teacher, having taught 33 years in the State of Washington, is spearheading the effort as the National Chairman to bring this event, to not only the Olympia area, but also nationwide. Bryan was the 2004 Head Coach for the USA Paralympic Track and Field Team, a 2013 Runners World Hero of the Year and he was also honored by the Washington State House of Representatives on February 11, 2014 for his work with disabled athletes and soldiers returning from combat in the Middle East. He currently serves as Vice Chair for the Invictus Foundation, a foundation to help heal the invisible wounds of war. He has traveled back east 15 times helping our wounded men and women.Our soldiers need our help. Estimates say there are over 350,000 soldiers coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan alone with some form of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), not to mention the soldiers returning as amputees, blind, or paralyzed as well as soldiers dealing with PTSD. We need to be proactive in whatever way we can to help our heroes. Run with a Soldier Day is one huge way to help our soldiers and anyone can join in.For more information contact Cherie Mortensen at [email protected] or 812.360.6533. Or visit Bryan’s web page here.
