The Coastal Carolina Memorial 5k is the first major event in the Carolinas to raise awareness of The Wingman Foundation. This year’s event is inspired by the memory of SSgt T.J. Dudley, and to support the Gold Star families that have lost loved ones to Navy and Marine Corps Aviation mishaps in our community.
Join us as we hike 46.3 miles from the HMH-463 Memorial, Hale’iwa Beach Park to Marine Corps Base, Hawaii to honor Maj Shawn Campbell, Capt Brian Kennedy, Capt Kevin Roche, Capt Steven Torbert, Sgt Adam Schoeller, Sgt Dillon Semolina, Sgt Jeffrey Sempler, Sgt William Turner, Cpl Matthew Drown, Cpl Thomas Jardas, Cpl Christopher Orlando, and Lcpl Ty Hart, who lost their lives in the 14 Jan 2016 mishap off the coast of Hawaii.
