ALPHA MEDIA Country WUBB (BOB 196.9)/SAVANNAH, GA morning personality TIM LEARY put on full military battle gear to run the inaugural "RUN FOR THE BRAVE 5k" this past weekend.
The race attracted more than 220 runners to raise money for OPERATION HOMEFRONT. LEARY was joined by ARMY Specialist BAKER REEVES, and ARMY Sgt. 1st Cl. PHILADELPHIA from HUNTER ARMY AIRFIELD to help him suit up and get through the race.
“There’s definitely a sense of finality when you get strapped into the body armor and rucksack,” explained LEARY. “When overseas, our troops have this weight on them for 10-14 hours at a time. I’m just attempting to go 3.2 miles.”
