BENEFITING: Muscular Dystrophy Association
EVENT DATE: Sep 20, 2014
Welcome to my fundraising site! My name is Kelly Ramey and I will be running my first 100 mile race on September 20, 2014. I have been an avid runner all my life, running everything from 5K's to marathon's. This past year I have challenged myself and entered the world of ultra running. You have to have a lot of passion and patience to be an ultra runner. Suffering is expected when you run for hours and even days. It's not easy but it's nothing compared to what someone goes through with ALS. My husband and I are close to a family that is struggling with this horrid disease and we always feel that we need to help, but HOW?
This is why I am putting my miles to work. Come September 20th, I will be faced with the greatest physical and mental challenge I have ever encountered. I will attempt to run my first 100 mile race. I don't know if I will be able to finish but my goal is to complete this race in 24 hours or less. I am asking you to help me fight ALS mile by mile. Please consider making a donation of a $1 a mile for however many miles you think I will run. If I finish the race in 24 hours or less I would ask that you double your donation. AND if I finish the race I will dump a bucket of ice over my head!
So the challenge is on! Thank you for your help in fighting this disease!
