Fernando Camacho, a firefighter with Aircraft Rescue Firefighting, Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, tend to a heat-stricken competitor near the 12th mile of the 2010 Honolulu Marathon, Dec. 12. For the second year in a row, the Marines hiked the 26.3-mile marathon with boots, camouflage trousers and 65-pound packs to raise money for wounded Marines and sailors at Wounded Warrior Battalion West — Detachment Hawaii. "At first, people looked at us like we were crazy," said Camacho, from Chicago. "But when they realized why were hiking — to help out those who couldn't because of the pain they had endured — the looks on their faces changed. That made it well worth it."
