WHAT IS DHP?
The Disposable Heroes Project was founded in August 2009 by former Marine Corps sniper Brad McKee, who served two tours of duty in Iraq. Inspired by the story of a former Special Ops Marine, McKee along with the assistance of two friends Samuel Macaluso and Kyle Clements, decided to run 100 miles in honor of military veterans who have given their lives to protect our nations freedom. In April 2010, McKee completed the mission and ran 106.4 miles from Braithwaite, LA to Hammond, LA. In July 2011, DHP was granted its official 501 (c)(3) nonprofit status. However, McKee’s mission wasn’t complete. In June 2014, McKee decided to challenge his limits and raise continued awareness of DHP and its services, by running 200 miles from Point Le Hache, LA to Hammond, LA.
The mission of the Disposable Heroes Project (DHP) is to recognize, honor and support our wounded, former, fallen and active duty troops. The DHP is proud to serve all branches of the military and their families. We aim to ensure our American troops are never without needed assistance. Our mission will never fade. It will only get stronger.
