This year, Indiana’s sixth annual Run For The Fallen did not let COVID-19 get the best of it. In the past, this tribute has always been a 140-mile run from Fort Wayne to Indianapolis, via Portland, over a three-day period in early May with 20 runners.
Over the past few months, the horrendous impact of COVID-19 has become personal for many of us. My physician has had it, my Christian spiritual adviser and his wife suffered through it, he even lost his mother to it. Watching friends and colleagues struggle with the wrath of COVID-19 is gut-…
