Details

The Bataan Death March will take place on March 21st at 4:30 am. That's right, we need to be at White Sands Missile Range at 4:30 am.

This will be my 7th year. I did the full 26.3 miles once and now I do the 15 mile March.

The March takes place at White Sands Missile Range. One can either do the 26.3 mile March or the 15 mile March. Last year 5,700 people participated in the March. At least half are soldiers. I primarily do the March to spend a day with our soldiers. I say to as many soldiers as possible "Thank You for Your Service to Our Country". I view it as a day of thanks and appreciation of our troops.

The costs of the March is $65 for individuals and $275 for a team of 5 (each team member pays $55). Several folks has asked me to form a team. If you wish to participate as a team member, please email me by March 5th so I can collect the money for the registration fee. If I don't hear from at least 4 other individuals, then I will encourage all of you that are interested to register as individuals.

Please email me directly and I will give you my mailing address for a check for $55. [masked]. We can also discuss car pooling the morning of the March. We will need to leave Las Cruces at 4 am.

Please review the web site for the Bataan Death March. You do have to go to White Sands Military base the Friday or Saturday right before the March to pre-register.
