The 100 Mile Club® provides the opportunity to run or walk 100 miles at school during a single school year and is committed to improving school readiness to learn, creating better educational outcomes, building self-esteem and overall improved health in the lives of children and others.
We are a grass-roots non-profit dedicated to helping our children become healthy, happy, and connected...one child, one school, one community at a time.
This year I am 1 of 100 athletes in the World to be invited to race Badwater 135 on July 21, 2014 Recognized globally as the “world’s toughest footrace”.
Badwater 135 has been a dream of mine or should I say an obsession since 2004. I literally read or talk about the race daily. This race challenges athletes like no other race does and I want to test my limits. I want to show the kids of the 100 mile club that anything is possible when you have a goal and determination. The 100 Mile Club is a non-profit organization that provides the opportunity to run or walk 100 miles at school during a single school year. This program motivates kids to become more active, creates a team environment and sets a goal for the kids to strive for.
Childhood inactivity and obesity are at an all-time high and affects 1 of every 6 kids in the United States. To make matters worse, only 8 percent of elementary school students have daily PE at school.
With that being said, I am asking for your donations to help reach my goal of $5,000. Any donation amount will help. Each $10 donated will support one kid in the program for a year. My Goal is to be able to help 500 kids.
Thank you in advance for your support with the 100 mile club
