What is Mission 484: The Reminder Miles?
Juan Madrid is a US Navy SARC veteran. What is a SARC? SARCs are special amphibious reconnaissance corpsmen, who are assigned to MARSOC and Recon units. Mr. Madrid was assigned to 4th Recon Battalion and is a veteran of the Gulf War. He witnessed first hand the struggle with PTSD after losing teammates to suicide, and also dealing with the same types of struggles in his own life after he retired.
Mr. Madrid wanted to give back to the veteran community a message of hope and solidarity, and thus Mission 484 was born. He will be running 22 miles a day for 22 days, to help 22 Until None raise money. This year we will be using it for our 6th annual Task Force Kringle program which assists eligible veteran families in financial distress with Christmas gifts.
