50 Days to the White House

Today begins the final 50 days on the road to the White House in an epic year of running and creating activity that is raising awareness for Our Kids.
Our efforts to donate a million miles in this virtual event has reached all 50 states and many other countries in what has been dubbed the "Follow Me" movement, to let the most powerful nation on earth know that we need more research for kids fighting for life from the #1 killer by disease. On September 21st the virtual finish line will be reached when people all over the country and beyond will join together in Washington D.C. at CureFest 2014. If you plan on attending this amazing event and join us in the final lap to the White House please register through the CureFest web site here http://www.curefestdc.org/ and follow the facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/curefestdc

As the host of the Run for the White House for Childhood Cancer Awareness, I will lead the way starting August 3rd for the final 50 days. Each day I will call out a state and ask people in that state to post their miles, share their stories and join me in a virtual tour of all 50 states until I arrive in DC in September. We will run together and donate as many awareness miles as possible to reach 1,000,000 by the end of September, but if we work hard we can finish by the time I reach the White House on the 21st which is an average of about 4000 miles per day.

I finished my first event in July riding 65 miles for the cystic fibrosis foundation, and in August I will be running the Hood to Coast relay here in Oregon. September I will run to the White House and sometime in between I will hope to join my friends at Miles to Give during their 10,000 mile tour this year. I will finish my running events in October with the Portland half marathon which includes my fundraiser for the Children's Cancer Association for my charity bib.
