A: 8 Days of Greatness commemorates and celebrates the way the Cincinnati community came together in May 2014, when over 1000 volunteers, friends and complete strangers worked together for 8 days and spent countless hours searching for U.C. student Brogan Dulle. Another 25,000 supporters joined the Help Find Brogan Dulle Facebook page, offering words of encouragement, tips and more. Although the outcome was not what we had hoped and prayed, the outpouring of pure greatness inspired us to create a campaign that both celebrates the greatness and power of helping one another as well as honors Brogan’s memory.
