We are on a journey to run a half marathon in all 50 states and want to make a difference in the world while doing it.

We are asking for your support to donate $10 each time we complete a race. At a rate of about one race per month, we should complete our journey in about 4 years. If you commit to donate $10/race, that is only a total of $500 over the course of 4 years. Our goal is to have 50 people commit to this journey with us by donating. That would amount to $25,000 raised - which would provide over 108,000 meals or, enough to feed nearly 300 kids for a full year.
