"For the third year in a row, on Friday, July 25th, 2014, I will be running 24 hours straight to raise money and awareness for the 31 Heroes who gave their lives on August 6th, 2011. I've named my 24 hour run "Joggin' for JT" in honor of my dear friend, Jon T. Tumilson, who was aboard the helicopter that was shot down in Afghanistan. Please join me in commemorating these lives, and to honor them and their families, by supporting my run. Never Forget. Never, ever, Forget."To support Mike's cause, we are donating a portion of all sales made on July 26 and 27th, 2014 to the 31 Heroes organization. Shop ToeSox and help us support our troops.
