In May of 2015, Backpacks For Life attended the Liberty Lightning 9k, held at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. It wasn't the best day weather wise for a 9k but we ended up luckier than most!

He was reporting for Memorial Day Weekend and it was a perfect fit that our nonprofit was geared towards our service men and women.
