Here is a great event that I wanted to bring some attention to as the Some Gave All – The Joey Graves Foundation is participating in the CA Run For the Fallen On Sept. 30. at hero marker #97.
Via Facebook Post
Help us support this great effort in HONORING THE FALLEN by joining us on SUNDAY 9/30 at HERO MARKER #97 (on J4 just past Bongusto’s, near Lon’s Farm Stand) at 6:30 am when CA Run for the Fallen relay teams will be placing a flag for in honor of Joey.
CA Run for the Fallen will then continue on to Brentwood & Oakley to place other Hero Markers via Balfour Blvd, Brentwood Blvd, and Main Street. For more route locations and times please visit
