For those who know me, know I have an unfortunate amount of family and friends that have had to battle cancer of all different forms. I hope that my small fundraiser can help bring a cure as soon as possible.

I plan to raise at least $3,000 for BCRF - Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Hopefully a lot more. My goal is to run 1500 miles in 1 year or less. The start date was January 1st 2013 and my last day to hit my goal is December 31st. This averages out to 4.1 miles per day and about 29 miles a week. And for those who don't know me personally, I live in Dallas, TX which means running in 95+ degrees with no clouds. 

I am hoping that my running will inspire people to go the extra mile, find some spare cash, and donate to a great cause. I had to be the first (hopefully not last) person to donate, but my plan is to donate $1 for every mile that I run up to the full 1500 miles. With a little luck and a lot of work I hope to smash the target amount and keep right on going. Please note that all donations made through this website go directly to BCRF. 

I will be updating this website so people who donate can track my progress. No cheating I promise. My hope is that people will either donate a flat amount, or donate per mile. This will keep me motivated to keep running and keep raising money. 

One last note before I start with the monthly mileage updates. I am only counting miles actually RUN. Walking the dogs, cross training, etc do not count. I came up with this idea in late February and most of January was spent cross training so I'm already behind. Time to hit the road!

Mileage updates:

January target miles:127.5 vs actual miles: 60

February target miles: 242.5 vs actual miles: 167

March target miles: 369.9 vs actual miles: 299.1

May target miles: 620.61 vs actual miles: 580.1

June target miles: 743.91 vs actual miles: 755.2

July target miles: 871.32 vs actual miles: 913.2

August target miles: 998.73 vs actual miles: 1036.7

September target miles: 1122.03 vs actual miles: 1192.7

October target miles: 1249.44 vs actual miles: 1364.7

November target miles: 1372.74 vs actual miles: 1500.2 ! Goal Completed !

December target miles: 1500 vs actual miles: 1596.8

"There are some who call me.... Tim"

DONATION: $210

The run and fundraiser are long over and done. I beat my running goal, but missed my fundraising goal. Obviously I'm better at one than the other. Maybe it's OCD, or maybe it's just a great cause... either way it's bugged me long enough that I'm donating again to finish off my original goal. If anyone should see this, I encourage you to donate. Even if it's not through this link, donating to your favorite breast cancer charity is very much appreciated. Most likely my final comment here: Thank you to all that donated. For all that fought the good fight and lost, we will always remember you. For all that are, have, or will battle... keep your head up, give it hell, and know that you have more support from people you know (and don't know) than you will ever realize. 6 months ago

Thanks again to everyone who showed support one way or another. I'm making my last donation early as I've only got 115 miles to go. I will walk, limp, or crawl my way to my goal if I have to. If you haven't donated yet (or even if you have) please consider doing so. It's a great cause. I'm really hoping to hit my target, or even break it. This has been a great experience for the past year, giving me a reason to get out of my cozy bed and lace up the shoes on the weekends. Or trading the work shoes at the end of a hard day for running shoes. Lastly, I will end with one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite books. If you're a runner (or even if you're not) you need to read this. “You don't stop running because you get old, you get old because you stop running.” ― Christopher McDougall, Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen Thanks! 4 years ago
