Marine Lt. James Byler, of Huntington, was injured in October 2010 when he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED) in Northern Helmand Province, one of the deadliest provinces in Afghanistan.
senior John Feinberg has organized a charity 5K run through the streets of South Huntington. This three-mile run and charity event will benefit Byler through the Building Homes for Heroes organization.
"I wanted to do something to help James Byler, and that is when I thought of Building Homes for Heroes," Feinberg said. "They are currently raising money to remodel Byler’s home in Huntington, to make it accessible to his new-handicapped needs. We are organizing this run to finish the fundraising efforts to meet the goal of the organization."
