Nine Line Apparel and the Nine Line Foundation are excited to announce our 4th Annual 5K/10K Run for the Wounded. The run has grown steadily over the past few years, quickly becoming one of the city’s most highly attended races. This year’s event will be hosted at Grayson Stadium in Daffin Park right in the heart of the Historic District, a fresh change from the Hutchinson Island location which hosted the event the first three years.
The key element that draws people to this event is the Foundation’s claim as a 100% nonprofit organization. Nine Line Apparel covers all associated costs, so every cent raised by this and other Foundation events goes directly to one severely wounded veteran at a time, to drastically improve his/her life.
The Foundation’s most recent recipient, USMC veteran SGT Eric Morante, lost one of his legs after a suicide bomber detonated near his unit while they were deployed in Iraq. Now, the Nine Line Foundation has stepped up to provide SGT Morante with a handicap accessible home. Morante is the foundation’s sixth wounded veteran recipient, and his will be the fifth home they have helped build.
Last year’s Run for the Wounded brought in over $50,000 for recipient SFC Aaron Causey, who served in both the Air Force and the Army. Construction is currently being completed at the Causeys’ home in Alabama.
Not only will this evening run take participants through beautiful historic Savannah, it will end inside the stadium at home plate, where a variety of vendors will be set up with various goods to purchase, incredible raffle items, and live music by local musicians. Partnering with the Savannah Bananas and their good friends at Service Brewing Company, Nine Line has high hopes of this year being the best yet!
