Injured Vets Embrace Life At Annual Race

ANNAPOLIS - More than 1,000 people braved the brisk temperatures Sunday morning to run in the 4th Annual John Ripley Memorial Race and show their support for wounded veterans.

The 5-kilometer race benefited the Semper Fi Fund, a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to disabled military veterans and their families.

B.J. Ganem, a retired Marine Corps sergeant, served in Iraq until he was injured on Thanksgiving night in 2004.
