2020 MICHAEL P. MURPHY RUN AROUND THE LAKE VIRTUAL 4-MILE RUN AND HALF MARATHON
HONOR MURPH. SUPPORT LONE SURVIVOR FOUNDATION.
“Moving away from the protective mountain rocks, he knowingly exposed himself to increased enemy gunfire. This deliberate and heroic act deprived him of cover and made him a target for the enemy. While continuing to be fired upon, Murphy made contact with the SOF Quick Reaction Force at Bagram Air Base and requested assistance. He calmly provided his unit’s location and the size of the enemy force while requesting immediate support for his team. At one point he was shot in the back causing him to drop the transmitter. Murphy picked it back up, completed the call and continued firing at the enemy who was closing in. Severely wounded, Lt. Murphy returned to his cover position with his men and continued the battle.”
Honor the memory of Lt. Michael P. Murphy (SEAL) by signing up for the Michael P. Murphy Virtual Run! Each year, the Ronkonkoma Rotary in New York organizes a run around Lake Ronkonkoma, where Murph used to swim as a lifeguard. Thousands of runners participate both in person and virtually. The race benefits Lone Survivor Foundation as well as the LT Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation, the Navy SEAL Foundation, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Semper Fi Fund, and Rotary International. All of us here at LSF are honored to be chosen as a beneficiary, and we greatly appreciate the continued support!
If you can’t make it to the race in New York, supporters can participate in a virtual 4-mile run or Half Marathon. All Virtual Runners will receive a packet in the mail with a race bib, t-shirt, and dog tag. Half Marathon runners will also receive a finisher medal.
