Three years ago, on Memorial Day, CBS News correspondent Kimberly Dozier, her cameraman Paul Douglas (left) and soundman James Brolan fell victim to an insurgent attack in Baghdad. Dozier was critically wounded. The attack killed Douglas and Brolan.
Now, friends of London-based Douglas and Brolan are pedaling their way to raise money and awareness for freelance journalists everywhere.
The trio hope to arrive in Bayeux on Friday, the third anniversary of the attack. The money raised will benefit the Rory Peck Trust for freelance journalists and Reporters Without Borders.
The guys are just £1,000 short of their £18,000 goal. Among those who’ve given, Christiane Amanpour who was donated £500 and Dan Rather who has donated £600. “Honor to our fallen and a salute to those who are reminding us never to forget,” Rather writes.
