About the Campaign
In just a few days I will be running 166 miles in 6 days for Multiple Sclerosis. I will be fundraising with the 2019 MS Run The US Ultra Relay Team.
Running has always been a large part of who I am. Being diagnosed 3 years ago with a neurodegenerative disease that can take away my ability to run in an instant, has been tough. I try to not let the unknowns of the future get me down and I continue to run each and everyday.
I’ve completed 3 marathons since my MS diagnosis but I want to do something more! I know running over a marathon a day for 6 days straight is insane. I’m running while I still can and I’m running for those who can’t.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal. Any amount helps!
The Ultra Relay
The Ultra Relay is an annual, 19 segment, relay run stretching 3,260 miles across America for the MS cause.
The Relay begins each year in April in Santa Monica, CA and finishes in 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 19 segment relay. 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. Once selected each runner spends months training and fundraising with in depth help from the organization prior to the event’s start as they prepare to devote one week on the road while completing their segment’s miles. They are aided on the road by the organization’s road crew team. Each runner’s segment is logistically coordinated back-to-back as a part of the collective team effort to run across America. Donations raised support the organization’s mission to raise awareness of the MS disease, aid research, and to help those living with disability due to MS.
