LITTLE ROCK, AR -- This weekend, runners are marking a path across Arkansas to honor every Arkansas service member killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.

The team of runners will complete a 140 mile run, one mile for each fallen service member.

The purpose is also to provide support, hope and healing to families grieving the death of a loved one in military service regardless of relationship or circumstance of death.

The run team is stopping at every mile marker and present an American Flag and a biographical card in honor of every fallen service member in an effort to create a 140 mile memorial trail through Arkansas.

The Run for the Fallen continues through Sunday.

To follow their progress, check out their facebook page.
