"To help support the foundations and to honor the memory of LT. Murphy."
"Great run, Great people!!! The one event i try never to miss."
"My husband, CSC Larson was on the Michael Murphy for 3.5 years. We both ran the race virtually on the same day while he was deployed with the ship."
"I do a lot of local runs on Long Island but having family in the military, these types of runs especially mean a lot to me. This was my first Around the Lake run and I was completely unprepared for how awe-inspiring and touching this run would be. I will be a participant from now on!"
