Semper Fit Challenge honors a fallen marine while giving back

In January 2016, two military helicopters crashed during a training mission off of Hawaii. Twelve marines were missing including Sgt. Adam Schoeller from the Midstate. As days went on, searchers found debris and empty life rafts but not the men.

Schoeller parents, Ralph and Laurie Schoeller, formed the Sgt. Adam C. Schoeller, USMC, Memorial Fund Inc. to support the types of military family support organizations that reached out to them and also to support organizations that award scholarships to young adults who choose to enter the military.
