Living Giving: The Story of the 'Mile 7 Shirt'
Having hundreds of people to whom you are accountable because they have willingly come alongside your efforts and sent thousands of dollars is tremendous motivation to endure each marathon. I tell my faithful donors that “even if I have to crawl, I’ll finish the race!”
I would encourage other runners to use their passion for running to raise much-needed funds for worthy nonprofit organizations. The running community around the world has been extraordinarily generous to come alongside this effort. It has been a joy to see this outpouring of support. It’s very moving and encouraging to know that there are people around the world who will “give you the shirt off their back.”
