Matt Council’s 50 Mile Run for OPD

$ 4,000.00 Needed Donation Donate Now

EVENT DATE: April 4, 2020


The American River 50 Mile Endurance Run has become the second largest 50-miler in the United States. The race attracts both veterans and novices alike.

As a first-time ultra runner, Matt will be chronicling his progress over the next 15 weeks – truly showing what it takes to go from “couch to 50mi.” During this journey, Matt will be raising money for Operation Puppy Drop. So what’s the ultimate goal? To raise $4000, which covers the cost of rescuing and recovering ONE pup to help support our vets.

I wanted to try and raise money for a nonprofit and think that this would be the perfect opportunity.

Want to follow Matt on his journey? We’ll be regularly sharing updates of his progress on @OperationPuppyDrop. You can also show Matt some support by following his training on @m_council8.
