THANK YOU to everyone who came out and participated in our 4th Annual 5K/10K Run for the Wounded!






This year’s Run for the Wounded took place at historic Grayson Stadium at Daffin Park in beautiful downtown Savannah, Georgia, home to our city’s own Savannah Bananas baseball team! We are thrilled to announce that, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, runners, and volunteers, we raised over $65,000 towards the construction of a handicap accessible home for SGT Eric Morante!

What is the Run for the Wounded?

Join the Nine Line Foundation and Nine Line Apparel every Armed Forces Day for our Annual 5K/10K Run for the Wounded here in Savannah, Georgia. Proceeds from the race will go directly into helping our current veteran recipient, Eric Morante, a USMC veteran who lost a leg following a suicide bomber attack. With both 5K and 10K options available, this twilight run is great for any participant. Participants will receive a post race beer from local, veteran-owned Service Brewing Company (participants age 21+ only), a Nine Line Apparel T-shirt, koozie, and special edition 5K/10K challenge coin.

Thank you to Nashville recording artist and Savannah native Coty James for performing at this year’s Run for the Wounded! Coty James brings a classic country sound to the modern-day music industry and is being recognized for this traditional sound all over the nation. After being signed by SMG Records in Nashville, Coty released his first EP debuting the title track “Cowboy Casanova” in 2014. This EP landed him a top 100 single on the Musicrow chart. Since then, Coty has released a single entitled “Cut Me Off” to radio in 2017 and has gained sponsorship by Nine Line Apparel, a highly well known patriotic clothing company dedicated to regain national pride. Nine Line Apparel is set to accompany Coty on his upcoming Cabela’s tour around the country. Coty’s newest single will be released to radio on June 5 titled “His Problem Now”.
