When Jamie Summerlin felt the calling to do something more meaningful with his life, the U.S. Marine came up with an extreme idea. His desire to bring attention and assistance to wounded veterans led to a 100 – day, 3,452 – mile run across America. His journey was intended to inspire those who sacrificed for America?s freedom, but along the way Summerlin realized he was the one being inspired. Freedom Run not only tells the story of Summerlin?s amazing run across America and his attempt to raise awareness and money for charitable organizations that serve wounded U.S. veterans, but it reveals the heartfelt stories of the many veterans he met along the way. Beginning in Coos Bay, Oregon, and ending in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Summerlin?s trek across the nation and the stories of the veterans he encountered serve as an inspiring and eye – opening tale of courage, determination, and honor in America.
is a captivating book that is not only a story of one man?s amazing run across the US, but also a story about the true American spirit. My family and I have hearts of prayer for those who have fought for our country, so I was humbled to read about how Jamie Summerlin has used a sport that has meant so much to me to give back to our veterans.?
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>
