50 Run Project


I thought this was a nice article from Buffalo Rising. Staff Sergent Dan Frontera plans on running in every WNY footrace this summer with a 50 pound rucksack on his back. On it, are the names of every Western New Yorker killed in Iraq and Afghanistan...

The Operation 50 Run project is an effort to raise awareness and essential funding to erect a memorial on the Buffalo Waterfront dedicated to all WNY residents who have served our country in support of the wars in Iraq and  Afghanistan. The Memorial will pay special reverence to the more than 50 local Heroes who lost their lives in service to our country.

 To contact Dan regarding this great goal, please call him at 716-491-7901 or email him at Hat's off to Dan for trying to do something positive in the community. To see the full article, please check out Buffalo Rising...
