2019 Race 34: Luke Holler 5K

My 34th race of 2019 was the Luke Holler 5K on June 1, held at Bulverde City Park in Bulverde, Texas. This annual 5K run/walk is done in honor or Luke Holler, Marine from San Antonio’s 4th Reconnaissance Battalion who was KIA in 11/2/06 by a roadside bomb in western Iraq’s Al-Anbar province while soldiers were extracting his unit from a reconnaissance mission. This event is done annually to remember the sacrifices made for freedom and to remember, respect, and honor Luke’s personal sacrifice. Proceeds benefit the Recon and Sniper Foundation, providing veterans with the resources and supporting infrastructure they need to make a meaningful transition back to civilian life.
