Event Mission

"Sledgehammer Race Series" in memory of Dr. E. B. Sledge, is a national series that will start in Onslow County.

 

The mission statement of the "Sledgehammer Race Series" is: To Honor the memory of Sledgehammer and All Combat Veterans."  Sledge was a lifelong Marine who spent the remainder of his post war years coming to terms with what he and his fellow combatants experienced during World War II. His memoir, With the Old Breed at Peleilu and Okinawa, was used as a reference for Ken Burns' PBS documentary, "The War" and Tom Hanks and Stephen Spielbergs' HBO miniseries "The Pacific" starring Joseph Mazello as Sledge.

 

It is with this in mind that a portion of "Sledgehammer Race Series" proceeds will benefit the Semper Fi Fund.
