Running Fir Wreaths

Running Fir Wreaths (VA7777) helps Arlington National Cemetery to remember and honor our veterans by laying remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.  Gold Star Mother Cathy Powers is "Running Fir Wreaths" in 2019.  Her goal is to run a total of 1,000 miles (with a portion in every state) in honor of her son, Senior Airman Bryce Kenneth Powers, U.S. Air Force.  She'll do this while raising funds to sponsor veterans' wreaths to be placed at Arlington National Cemetery next December as part of Wreaths Across America.  She selected New Salem Elementary to run with her as part of the North Carolina portion of her run.
