West Virginia marine runs across the country
A man who is running across the country to raise awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project will be in Charleston on Sunday. 39-year old former Marine Jamie Summerlin is from Morgantown, but set out on foot in Coos County, Oregon March 26th on a quest to reach Annapolis, MD by July 4th. He covers about 30 miles per day and that will add up to almost 3500 miles when he finally finishes. He's not completely alone on the journey. His family follows behind in an RV. They'll all be in Huntington on Saturday and Charleston on Sunday, then its on to places like Ivydale and Burnsville on the way to Annapolis.
