About the Campaign
My name is Daniel Wray. I’m 29 years old and currently work as an athletics administrator and basketball coach at Southern Virginia University. I recently completed my PhD from The Ohio State University. I love being active, reading, and spending time with family. I joined the 2020 MS Run the US Team because it’s a cause in which I sincerely believe, and I know that together we can stop MS!
The Ultra Relay
The MS Run the US – Relay is an annual 3,260-mile relay run across America for the multiple sclerosis (MS) cause.
The Relay begins each year mid-April in Santa Monica, CA and finishes mid-August in New York, NY. Our Relay runners are selected via our online application process to participate as an individual segment runner as a part of the Ultra Relay team.
To participate each runner commits to fundraising $10,000 over ten months and to running approximately 160-miles over 6 consecutive days during his or her assigned Relay segment. There are 19 segments total in the relay spanning from California to New York. Once selected each runner spends months training and fundraising prior to the event as they prepare to devote one week on the road with the nonprofit while completing their segment’s miles. Each runner’s segment is logistically coordinated back-to-back as a part of the collective team effort to run 3,260-miles over the duration of 4.5 months.
