On June 27, 2018, at sunrise, I will embark from Victoria, BC on foot and not stop until I dip my foot in the Atlantic Ocean off the harbour in St. John’s Newfoundland. I will have run, on average 108 KM a day for 66 days in a row.
I am known as an elite runner and I like to think an all-around nice guy. My drive to break the current Guinness World Record to run across Canada stems from my deeply seeded passion to push boundaries and making impossible feats possible. Supporting the Rare Disease Foundation is a natural fit. My aim is to draw awareness to the needs and struggles that rare disease forces upon those it touches, and to raise funds to assist those focused on the important research that must continue.
My son Sam struggles daily with a rare disease called RECA, which makes simple movements difficult. Simply put, if he could run like his father he would never stop.
Our fundraising goal is $1 million which I know is a big task but equals the effort. We need your support – volunteer, donate, or spread the word. We’re calling out to every Canadian, Runner, Ultra Runner, Athlete… Believe me, I know the importance of every step – no matter how small.
