About the Campaign

Carol is my mother-in-law; she has lived with MS for 35 years. She says the worst part of living with MS is “not being able to stand up and hug.” She says the best part of living with MS is “having time to spend with God reading the bible.” She also says “it has taught me to think about others and how I might help them” and that “being positive is half the cure.”

The Ultra Relay

I will be running 150-miles from Brookville to Sunbury, PA over 6 days as part of The MS Run the US Relay Team.

The MS Run the US is an annual 3,260-mile relay run across America for the MS cause.

The Relay begins each year mid-April in Santa Monica, CA and finishes mid-August in New York, NY. Relay runners are selected to participate for individual segments as a part of the Ultra Relay Team.

To participate each runner commits to fundraising $10,000 over ten months in addition to running their assigned Relay segment. There are 19 segments total in the relay spanning from California to New York. 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.
