BENEFITING: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2013
Mileage Tracker: 1,597
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!
