In 2009 Hallet’s husband - CPT John Hallet - was killed during an attack while deployed in Afghanistan. During that deployment, a small group of wives and battalion support staff met weekly to run, seeking to create a support network for one another. This small group became a nationwide vision that now helps thousands heal from and work through the more challenging aspects of military life during a time of war. Today, this group runs to honor all military members killed in combat and has evolved into a robust network of active duty and retired service members, military families, Wounded Warriors, Gold Star families, and community members.
