_ The 2024 Cpl. Fulks Memorial Trail Race:

The Cause

The proceeds from this race will contribute to a scholarship fund in honor of Cpl. William B. Fulks and support this local Marine Corps League Detachment in its pursuit to serve veterans of our community.

This trail event is an annual tribute to this local hero who was assigned to the 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C.   On May 1, 2006, Cpl. Fulks was wounded while conducting combat operations in Anbar Province, Iraq by an improvised explosive device (IED) which detonated beneath his Humvee near Fallujah.  The blast inflicted second and third degree burns along with internal injuries. Cpl. Fulks succumbed to his wounds on Thursday, May 18, 2006.
