On Sunday, August 30, 2009, Maine's "Run for the Fallen" event took place. The run was 59 miles long; one mile for each fallen Maine serviceman of the War on Terror. Along each mile mark were a photo of the service member and a short biography. A lobster bake was held after the run at Fort Williams in Cape Elizabeth for the runners and fallen servicemen families.
