In 2012, 3rd Ranger Battalion veteran US Army Corporal Cory Smith, having deployed to combat twice, experienced having friends killed and wounded and with his own marriage failing decided to highlight the difficult journey home many soldiers have leaving the Army by undergoing a very public and very difficult journey home himself. Cory decided to run 565 miles in 28 days with holding his daughter Elleigh in his arms the end goal of his run.
This past year, 3rd Ranger Battalion combat veteran Cory Smith has highlighted the difficult transition so many veterans face by making a very difficult, public and personal transition – he ran home! Columbus GA to Indianapolis IN – 565 miles. Now you can join Corey to make a difference right where you are, and bring awareness to the difficult transition many of our honored military veterans face.
Teams of up to ten individuals pledge to walk, run and/or ride bicycles a combined total of 565 miles in the month of February (usually 28 days) raising funds for GallantFew while increasing awareness for the veteran transition issues.

Ranger Dan Filipiak served in 1st Platoon, Bravo Company, 1st Ranger Battalion. Dan was a successful graduate of Army Airborne School, Ranger Indoctrination Course (RIP), and Army Ranger School. Furthermore, Dan deployed to combat in support of the global war on terror. He was a pleasure to be around, even in the most unpleasant of times.
Yet, only months after leaving active duty, our brother in arms took his own life.

Thank you for opening this event to the public. I followed Cory on Facebook when he was running home. It was empowering watching him take on such a challenge. I was moved by such an event. I\'m proud to take on such a challenge in February. In the 3 days I formed Sua Sponte Washinton we\'ve managed to raise $300. This feeling is truly amazing. I thank all the people who\'ve helped put this event together especially my Ranger Buddy, Cory. From the bottom of my heart, God Bless You!!
