I am a 17 year old runner in Gardiner, MT who runs almost every day in the mountains around my home and have been completing marathons for two years. This summer every race I have signed up for has been cancelled, including the Rut 50k in Big Sky - which was to be my first ultra marathon. I was frustrated, angered, and saddened. However, I chose to overcome this with a more audacious plan: run 100 kilometers (~62 miles) from Livingston to Gardiner through Paradise Valley. But there is a second part to this - I am asking you to sponsor me in raising money for Children International. Their mission is to provide resources to help empower children to rise out of poverty. If you have the means, I would be grateful if you sponsor me for a certain amount of pennies per kilometer (i.e. 10¢/km = $10 donation; 25¢/km = $25 donation - if you would like to donate less than the website's minimum, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org). The run is scheduled for September 12th, 2020. Thank you for your support!
