Welcome to the website of ALWAYS BROTHERS, a fraternal and 501c3 organization. We are a group of individuals who want to take
the opportunity to represent those that have given the ultimate
sacrifice and to help support the families of those who are no longer
Our founding core of Marines has grown to veterans from every
branch of service. We have also grown by having the honor of their families and friends join our ranks. Always Brothers has been grateful from the out pouring of support from civilians, organizations, agencies, and
corporations. We welcome all of them into our family, as we see it as a bigger corps to achieve our goal. Without this support we would not have been able to
pull off "100 Miles for Swisher," "100 Miles for Lima," or "100 Miles for One Mind." Nor could we continue our endeavor
to support veterans or their families. Please take time to view our website, from past events, to members and sponsors.
Semper Fidelis, Semper Fratres - Always Faithful, Always Brothers
On 13 November 2004, Lance Corporal Justin M. Ellsworth gave his life to save 15 fellow Marines.
Lance Corporal Ellsworth was awarded the Bronxe Star with "V" posthumously for his selfless actions.
On 9 November 2013, Always Brothers hosted a Honor Run to raise funds that will directly benefit
Military Families United of Michigan.
The FORD MOTOR COMPANY graciously donated $2,500 dollars to the Ellsworth event. We are thankful of their continuing effort to support service members and their families!
Always Brothers welcomes Great Clips as the presenting sponsor of the 100 Miles for One Mind run event. Great Clips, the world’s largest salon brand, is dedicated to making real and significant impacts on the communities it serves and is proud to support Always Brothers and the effort to raise money and awareness for post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury research and treatments. Great Clips’ $10,000 donation will go a long way to supporting the mission of Always Brothers.

I had the opportunity to run with the Always Brothers military team on their 100 Miles for One Mind solo and relay run this past weekend.
I had run in four 100-mile races — including my first Western States 100 from Truckee to Auburn 41 days before — as well as many 50- and 62-mile races, and countless 26- to 50-mile training runs, since I started ultra-marathoning in 2010.
