CBS News correspondent Kimberly Dozier, seriously injured in Iraq in 2006, is once again running the Team Fisher House 10K as part of the Marine Corps Marathon later this month. And this year, she’s doing it in honor of CBS Radio News correspondent Cami McCormick (pictured), herself injured in Afghanistan in August.
Fisher House is a place for families of injured troops to stay while their loved ones recover. Dozier’s family stayed there when she was injured. McCormick’s family is there now. 97.5 cents of every dollar donated to Fisher House goes directly toward program expenses. It’s regarded as one of the most efficiently run charities.
The race is Sunday, Oct. 25. Dozier is the pre-race pasta dinner speaker the night before.
