Brian "Bubba" Bunting and his wife Nicki started their race towards a big family on their honeymoon, and wanted to keep on steadily gaining ground. Bubba's deployment put a halt on their plans.
Bubba's race to grow his family continues after he was tragically killed while serving in Afghanistan-just 4 days after returning from spending 2 weeks at home with his family for R&R. Neither he nor Nicki knew at the time he was killed that they had succeeded in attempts to expand their family over his short break from deployment. Nicki found out she was pregnant just days after the news came of Bubba's death. Their son, Connor, would have a sibling after all.
Bubba's Run is a 5K run in honor and memory of Captain Brian "Bubba" Bunting's race to grow his family and for the benefit of his children's education.
The race will be held the weekend of Nicki and Bubba's wedding anniversary, when his original race began.
Bubba's Run will take place in Maryland on September 27. Click here for more information about the run, and to see how you can help.
Looks like a great event:
