The Race Across USA is a 140-day stage race across the United States. It begins January 16, 2015 in Huntington Beach, California and ends 140 days later at the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. The goal of this race is to raise awareness about childhood “inactivity”, to raise money for the 100 Mile Club® and to sign up as many schools as possible along the way.
Inspired by the 1992 Olympics, special education teacher, Kara Lubin, used the dream of becoming a gold medalist to inspire her hard-to-motivate students. That year, The 100 Mile Club® was born from a simple idea, run 100 miles and earn a medal. With incentives given along the way, including our unique milestone t-shirt, lessons in goal-setting, determination, and team spirit are delivered alongside exercise. The 100 Mile Club® now has in over 600 schools in all 50 states (October 2013). In fact, last year, this dynamic organization went international, adding schools in Canada, Japan and New Zealand.
The 100 Mile Club® is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization. Tax ID #20-8425786.
Address: 2191 Fifth Street, Suite 211 Norco CA 92860
Please help to prevent obesity in children by making fitness opportunities available in schools and empowering kids to achieve a healthy life style they can maintain. Your contribution to the 100 Mile Club, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization addresses the issue of childhood obesity and inactivity using a safe, fun and consistent program that can be modified to fit the needs of all children. It builds confidence, mental and physical strength, discipline, perseverance, relationships and the ability to set goals. I believe it's the key to success in all areas of life.
