Throughout history, society has looked towards leaders, change makers, do’oers of good deeds, as well as our iconic Superheroes, to teach us how to build a better world.
RUN 4 A CAUSE is not an organization, nor is it a non profit or charity. It’s an idea, that; empowers youth and people of all ages to harness their own potential through the power of sport philanthropy. As you know my alter-ego runs marathons and ultras for great causes – with a goal of raising $1 million before the age of 35. I am nearly there with just over $200k to go.
Join my Superhero Campaign and become a social crusader.
