How You Can Help

  • Make a Donation
  • Provide a place for me to stay overnight. A room would be great; a couch will do
  • Help schedule and coordinate talks at night after my day’s run is over
  • Help schedule and coordinate presentations to service organizations during their lunch-time meetings
  • Help schedule and coordinate presentations to church groups on Sunday’s on my “days off”
  • If you’re part of a local NAMI chapter, part of another mental illness organization, or part of a veterans organization, participate in a presentation so people in attendance will have a local contact with your organization
  • If you’re helping with scheduling or providing a couch, be very flexible. Due to the extreme nature of what I’m doing, my schedule will be fluid. The closer a date gets, the more accurate my projection will be, but illness, injury, or lousy weather may still interfere.  A lot can happen when running six marathons a week for five months
  • Subscribe to my Blog, follow my progress, and comment on my writings so I know people are out there
  • Like my page on Facebook, then comment and share so I know there are people pulling for me and so that others become aware of this
  • Follow me on Twitter, send me messages, reply to messages, and retweet my messages to get the word out and to let me know you’re out there
  • If you have media contacts in locations in which I’ll be running, contact them and see if they’ll do an interview as I run through their town
  • If you’re near my running route:
    • Honk and wave
    • Say Hi
    • Run with me for a bit
    • It’s much harder to quit when people are watching
    • It’s even harder to quit when people are helping and I know I’m not doing this alone
  • Let your friends and neighbors know what I’m doing and encourage them to help
  • Contact my sponsors and thank them for sponsoring me. They’re helping me keep expenses low. Let them know people are aware of this and appreciate what they’re doing to help
  • Prayers, good wishes, happy thoughts, and positive vibes are all appreciated!
