Local Hero, Michael Murphy, was born and raised on Long Island where he served as a Town of Brookhaven lifeguard at Lake Ronkonkoma. Michael graduated from Penn State University with Honors, and instead of attending Law School, joined the Navy SEALs.

He was 29 years old in June 2005, when he perished in a fierce firefight in mountainous terrain along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border in Operation Red Wings.

He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions.

LT Murphy also received:
The Silver Star
Purple Heart
Combat Action Ribbon
Afghanistan Campaign Medal

Home Depot and the Team Depot organization ,with the partnership of the members of the Rotary club, have been a proud sponsor of the Michael Murphy Run for over 5 years now and we look forward to many more years to come. Over these past few years, we have donated supplies for the event to help ensure it's success and have also volunteered our services for setup of the event. In addition, we have also donated any home supply needs for veteran families in the local Long Island community throughout the year. This year, in addition to donating supplies and volunteer hours, we are looking to raise funds to benefit our local veterans directly here in our local community. Your support in our shared vision is greatly appreciated!!!!
