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.
