Join my team as I endure 888K for veterans to Stop Soldier Suicide.
I am the spouse of a US military veteran. I am also an endurance athlete who intends to inspire women by becoming the first female athlete to accomplish extreme endurance events, including a 250 mile race, self-supported, across Florida (www.helenedumaisathlete.com). Starting on May 19, I will run the Endurance Society’s Infinitus 888k trail race. With a 10-day cap to complete the task, the race ends just a few days prior Memorial Day. No woman has ever finished it. How is this a 22in22 challenge? 22k for each four US military branches (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines) equals 88k, which is the length of one loop. I have to run the loop 10 times to complete this 888k race. I am running to be a source of inspiration for female veterans and spouses, helping them to find strength and power to solve what may look impossible at times. I run for them.
Join me NOW to raise money and awareness for our heroes. My goal is to reach $8,888. Become part of my team (click the “join team button”) and commit yourself to run 22k or 88k during the 10 days I will run non-stop to complete this 888k race. If that isn’t tough enough, take a look at other options for distance at: www.endurancesociety.org/infinitus.html.
