2016 Brad Harper Classic on April 23rd in Dresden, Ohio

May 24, 2016 10:01 pm Published by

For the past several years, The Eyes of Freedom has been part of the Brad Harper Classic; a 5K race that is held in the memory of fallen Marine Brad Harper. Each year the race grows in attendance and this year was no exception. Despite the cold temperatures, runners from all over the state of Ohio came to raise money for a scholarship held in Brad’s memory. The striking Eyes of Freedom trailer from R+L was parked at the starting and finishing lines of both the 8K (a first this year) and 5K races, giving the runners more inspiration for their morning jaunts. Before the races started, a local Marine presented Steve and Janet Harper with an Ohio Military Medal of Distinction in Brad’s memory. As with previous years, lots of great times took place and it’s always great to see it grow. Until next time!
