On the morning of August 10th,2013 a group of Marines, accompanied by Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, family and friends, will run 100 mile ultra run in Seattle, WA to honor the fallen U.S. service men and women from the state of Washington and to raise money for One Mind for Research.  The "100 Miles for One Mind" run will begin at Leschi Marina on Lake Washington on August 10, 2013 at 0600 and will follow a route that will continue into south King County, Pierce County and back into Seattle where it will end at the Seattle Center and the iconic Space Needle at approximately 0900 on August 11, 2013.  The run will coincide with the  Marine Corps' Fourth Annual "Marine Week" activities, which is planned to take place in Seattle from August 5-11, 2013. Several of the former active duty Marines from the Always Brothers ultra running team will run the entire 100 miles in a 24 to 27 hour period, while others will run the route in several segments of 20 to 80 miles each. Always Brothers is inviting relay teams of up to ten people per team to run the 100 Miles for One Mind with them to help raise funds for One Mind for Research and honor the heroes from Washington state. 
  The beneficiary of Always Brothers' fundraising efforts, One Mind for Research, is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to coordinating funding and research for the treatment of brain disease, including post-traumatic stress (PTS) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).  One Mind for Research is led by CEO Pete Chiarelli, U.S. Army General (retired) who as Vice Chief of Staff of the Army led the Dept. of Defense efforts on  PTS, TBI and suicide prevention.  One Mind was founded by former Congressman Patrick Kennedy, who led the passage of the mental health parity bill, and Garen Staglin who, with his wife Shari, founded the International Mental Health Research Organization (IMHRO). One Mind for Research is currently a division of the non-profit International Mental Health Research Organization, but will soon be a stand-alone non-profit organization.
