54 runners. 54 Islands – one cause. #54Strong.
On the 6th September Hurricane Irma passed over the 54 islands of the British Virgin Islands as the most powerful Atlantic hurricane in history rated as a category 5 plus causing widespread catastrophic damage. Then on the 18th of September Hurricane Maria hit and destroyed what little was left of the islands.
For the 30,000 residents, it is clear the road to recovery will be long and expensive.
We are looking for 54 Strong runners to participate in the Miami Marathon or 1/2 Marathon in January 2018 to help raise funds for the British Virgin Islands.
All funds raised will be donated to Richard Branson's Virgin Fund, so 100% of the procceds will go to the BVI recovery effort.
