About This Activity

The Marine Corps Association Foundation has partnered with the Sugar Bear Foundation for this virtual run honoring the 8th anniversary of LtCol Mario "Sugar Bear" Carazo's making the ultimate sacrifice.  LtCol Carazo made the ultimate sacrifice July 22, 2010 when his AH-1W Cobra was shot down while supporting Marines engaged in a firefight in Afghanistan.  Proceeds from this event will be donated evenly between the Marine Corps Association Foundation and the Sugar Bear Foundation.
