He proudly served 24 years in the United States Navy, with the later part of his career being served in the Command Master Chief Program. He was highly decorated and attained the highest enlisted rank of E-9. He loved every year he spent and ship he served on while in the U.S. Navy.

CRB - Run

The American Cancer Society has been invited to help with the 38th annual Cooper River Bridge Run.

Through this partnership we have been able to raise thousands of dollars for our local Relay For Life events, each year.

 

This is where you come in! We are looking for about 125 excited Relay volunteers who are able to help us by participating in the Race- day activities and the festivities around it. Specifically, we need at least 100 volunteers to help at the Race Starting Line and another 20 people who can help staff the ACS table at the Race Expo (March 26th and 27th) and the Finish Festival immediately following the race.  

 

All volunteers will earn a donation for their RFL event and those participating on Race Day will get a 2015 CRBR shirt and are able to run the race (after the paying participants) for free!
