Our team name is Lt Col David Graves Green Fitness, inspired by Lt Col David Graves who sustained a massive brain injury after his skull was crushed, while overseas. He was hospital bound for 2 years and spent time at Walter Reed and the VA Medical Center of Richmond, before he was able to return home on Jan. 26 2017. After leaving the hospital he trained for 5 months at Green Fitness & Wellness before successfully running the Semper 5miler in Fredericksburg, VA May 2017.
