THANK YOU FROM THE DAN HEALY FOUNDATION
The 3rd Annual Dan Healy Memorial 5 K is now in the history books and what a day it was. So many made the race possible and with the monies collected the Foundation will be able to help more veterans and single parent households on the Seacoast as well as give scholarships to students entering the military or trade schools.
We want to thank all of the runners, volunteers, sponsors, organizers and media who helped make the run such a success as well the Town of Exeter, the Exeter police department and parks dept. for their support. See you all in ’18.

KIA AFGHANISTAN, JUNE 28, 2005
Senior Chief Petty Officer Dan Healy, of Exeter, NH was lost during Operation Red Wings when the rescue helicopter he was riding in was shot down. Inspired by an intense sense of honor and responsibility, he left the original helicopter he was on, took men off of the lead helicopter, and boarded in their place, saying:
“Those are my men, and my face will be the first one they see.”
