I'm going to run a 40 mile trail race in Davis, WV in the Canaan Valley for charity to help families deal with Alzheimer's Disease. I'm going to run 40 miles in a protected wildlife area, the only race of its kind in the country. It will take me on one of the toughest east coast ultramarathons I can get my hands on. It's called Highlands Sky. This will be my fourth running. It's brutal. The race allows me to test my limits, and doing it for a good cause will push me up through the ranks. Help me tear it up. I'm going to sleep in a tent the night before. I'm broke, yo. Otherwise I'd be donating to one of your charities!
I'm asking for donations. Pledge a dollar a mile. If I hit my goal of $1000 I'll be totally stoked. I worked in long-term care facilities for many years and I've seen this disease do some serious damage to people and their families.
It's $40. I'll publish a list of donors, it's tax deductible, and I'll send a letter thanking each and every one of my donors, even if it takes me until Christmas.
