NEW ORLEANS -- Brad McKee's vision to make a difference with his “Disposable Heroes Project” hit the pavement once again today as he continues his 200 mile journey.

It is all to show how dedicated McKee is to the men and women who served.

We caught up with McKee at the Jefferson Parish line as he was approaching the halfway point.

The former active duty marine says his non-profit helps raise money for the families of wounded and fallen troops.

McKee did run into some nasty weather along the way but he says this won't stop his mission.

“The reason behind this is I know I already ran 100 miles and I knew had to do something else to catch people's attention and get them involved,” McKee said. “If I would have told people I was just doing another 100, you would say he's already done it. I decided on 200 and now people say, oh now we are talking, right.”

McKee plans to finish the run where the “Honor Run” first began, and that is in Hammond.
