6.1 for Train 4 Autism

with one comment

I’m planning to run exactly 6.1 miles on December 26th as a satellite run for the Operation Jack Marathon. The purpose is to help raise awareness and funds for Train 4 Autism, a foundation dedicated to bringing together a community of athletes, physically active, and socially conscious people who are committed to raising awareness and funds for research and treatment for those living with Autism and their families.  You can participate, too! Operation Jack is looking for people to represent each of the 50 US states and there are still a few states without representatives.

Why 6.1 miles? It’s in support and recognition of Operation Jack founder Sam Felsenfeld’s completion of a monumental effort in 2010: Sam will be running his 61st marathon of the year on December 26th!  Sam’s purpose in running 61 marathons in 2010 was to help raise awareness and funds for Train 4 Autism. Let’s show our support as he reaches this goal!

Join us either by signing up to run 6.1 miles on December 26th or donate to the cause.  Here’s a link to my fundraising page – every little bit helps!

Peace,

-Mike
