A run unlike any other Monday morning. John Gollner of Clearwater literally giving every ounce of himself this Memorial Day to raise money for disabled veterans.

Running 45 miles, all to raise awareness. John is starting at 4 a.m. on Monday morning. The plan is to run until midnight. John calls himself Veteran  X.


The run won't be easy, he's carrying a 30 pound pack and his American Battle Flag along the way.

He hopes his run will motivate people to donate funds to disabled American veterans.
