Chattanooga was changed forever following the tragic shootings at the Armed Services Recruiting Center on Lee Highway and the U.S. Naval Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center on Amnicola Highway on July 16, 2015. Three years later, supporters will participate in the Chattanooga Heroes Run/Walk to honor and remember those who lost their lives and the hundreds of first responders who worked to protect the city.
The event, presented by Erlanger’s Level One Trauma Center and sponsored by LIFE FORCE Event Medicine, city of Chattanooga, Hamilton County, and Rock Creek, will take place on Saturday, July 14, at the RiverPark, beginning at 8 a.m. Last year’s event raised $22,000.
The families of Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan, Staff Sgt. David Wyatt, Sgt. Carson Holmquist, Lance Cpl. Squire K. Wells and Logistics Specialist 2nd Class Randall Smith have chosen to use the proceeds from this event to help fund the construction of a permanent memorial space at the RiverPark.
