On Saturday August 27th, 2016, the Marine Corps League Motherlode Detachment #1080 will sponsor the First Annual Gavin Brummund Memorial Trail Run at White Pines Park in Arnold, CA.
Marine Lance Corporal Gavin Brummund grew up in Arnold and joined the Marine Corps after graduation from Bret Harte High School. Gavin was an infantryman with Third Battalion, Sixth Marine Regiment and completed a combat deployment to Iraq in 2008. Gavin then deployed to Afghanistan in 2010 and lost his life in the service of our Country. Gavin is the only Calaveras County Marine to die during the Global War on Terrorism. Marine Corps League Detachment #1080 & Michaela, Gavin’s wife, are establishing a scholarship fund in his memory. The scholarships will be awarded to deserving Calaveras County college-bound seniors who are on the wrestling team, as Gavin was a 4 year Varsity Bullfrog.
