Marine Corps Veteran and Freedom Runner Jamie Summerlin will help kick off the 2013 Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium with a 101-mile run from Shepherdstown, W.Va., to Annapolis, Md., reliving the final day of his 3,452-mile Freedom Run across America to honor Veterans in 2012.
Beginning the morning of Thursday, December 26, Jamie will step off from Two Rivers Treads, the store that donated his 10 pair of shoes for the Freedom Run. Finishing 24 hours later, he will attend the Medal of Honor reception at the Governor?s Mansion, participate in the Military Bowl Parade and be recognized during the Military Bowl.
Always known for going the extra mile, Jamie mapped the route to the Military Bowl Freedom Run to ensure that he not only relived Day 100 with a 100 mile run, but wanted to also shed light on the brave men and women who always go the extra mile to protect our freedoms by adding 1 more mile to this challenge. His goal is to raise $100,000.00 for Operation Welcome Home, an organization ?For Veterans, By Veterans?. You can support Operation Welcome Home by making a 100% tax-deductible donation below(*).

We want all veterans to feel welcomed and a part of a special family that supports one another with help from our community and country. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowable by law.
At the young age of 39, I took on the greatest challenge of my life, an effort that pushed me both mentally and physically like I had never been challenged before. I completed a 3452 mile 100 day run across America, capped off with a 100 mile finish from Annapolis MD to Rehoboth Beach DE in under 24 hours, all to raise awareness and money in support of the men and women I consider my heroes, those that have worn and now wear the US Military’s uniform.
My book, “Freedom Run”, was released in April of 2013, detailing my journey to honor those who have bravely served, and describes the life-changing events of my run across America. MORE>
