EASTERN CAROLINA: Wingman Foundation Coastal Carolina Memorial 5K & Fun Run
This will be the very first time that our Ambassadorship participates in this event, which is in support of such an amazing cause and has very special ties to our local military community. The 5th Annual Coastal Carolina Memorial 5K and Kid’s Fun Run will be in memory of the crew of Ghost 31, Captain Matthew J. Tomkiewicz, Captain Ross A. Reynolds, Gunnery Sergeant James W. Speedy, and Corporal Jacob M. Moore. The crew were members of the VMM-261 Raging Bulls from Marine Corps Air Station New River. This year’s race will be held in the Jacksonville Commons in Jacksonville, NC. There is also an option to participate virtually to support The Wingman Foundation from wherever you are. The missions of The Wingman Foundation continue: 1) Supporting families in the immediate aftermath of the mishap and 2) Continuing to remember those air warriors we have lost to Navy and Marine Corps aviation mishaps.
The race will take place at the Jacksonville Commons Recreation Center.
