THE STORY:

Todd Jennings wrote -

In an effort to bring attention to the need for clean water - and in particular, clean rivers - ultrarunner and lifelong New York State resident Todd Jennings will be running the entire 315-mile length of New York’s Hudson River in May of 2012. The run will begin at Lake Tear of the Clouds, on the face of Mt. Marcy (New York’s highest peak), and will finish at The Battery in New York City. The endeavor will take 8 days, averaging approximately 40 miles per day, and is a fundraiser for Hudson River Sloop Clearwater.

Donations can be made on a "per mile" basis (10 cents = $31.50, 25 cents = $78.75, and so on...) or as a flat amount, which could be as low as $5.00 or as high as you would like.  My personal goal is to get at least 500 people to sponsor me at $0.33 per mile.  This alone will eclipse our target!
