Video: Walt Disney World Marathon- Cadet Runs In Full Fatigues and Carries 30 lb Backpack.

Air Force Cadet Third Class Malcolm Strong ran the Walt Disney Marathon for more than just himself, it was a "Run for the Fallen." The Central Florida native wants to raise awareness for all the men and women killed in the United States global war on terrorism. Strong ran the 26.2 miles in full military fatigues, carried a 30 pound backpack, and handed out American flags along the route. More importantly to the Air Force Cadet, he carried letters from family members whose loved ones were killed in the service of our country. He will wear the 2010 Disney World Marathon medal he earned with pride.
