Three-quarters of the way through his 100-mile ultra-marathon, Brad Mckee of CrossFit Hammond encounters an injury he was dreading when his knee starts to bother him. With almost a full marathon standing between him and the finish line, Mckee is driven onward by the friends and supporters who show up to help him.
For the remaining miles, inspirational wounded warrior Isaac (Corporal G) Gallegos joins the former Marine sniper to remind him of the purpose behind the Disposable Heroes Project, and Mckee pushes on as more and more people join the trek to the finish line in Hammond, La.
When Mckee finally crosses the finish line, he has some special words for Coach Greg Glassman, and it’s apparent that the end of the ultra-marathon was just the beginning of the Disposable Heroes Project.
