5K in memory of local soldier will help "comfort" wounded soldiers

Posted: Updated:

The annual CPT Kyle Comfort 5K Memorial Run & Walk will be November 10th, 2012. The event is the largest fundraiser for the CPT Kyle Comfort Foundation.

Army Ranger and Jacksonville native, Captain Kyle Comfort was killed in Afghanistan in May, 2010. In his honor, the foundation was established to help "comfort" wounded soldiers and their families. The foundation sends packages to soldiers during their recovery and also helps family members with travel expenses in order to visit their injured loved ones.
