July 19 - Miles 2 Give

Posted: Updated:

GOOD MORNING DELMARVA - Miles 2 Give is a 501c3 non-profit organization that raises funding for Sarcoma cancer research through cross country ultra-running.

The M2G U.S. tour is appropriately titled, "Pursuit to Give & Inspire." Funding will be distributed to Sarcoma Foundation of America to create the "Ashley Davis Grant." Every $55,000 creates a research grant. Every grant thereafter is rightfully ours to name.

The Miles 2 Give traveling team is composed of 3 runners traveling in a Winnebago RV. Landon Cooper is Founder & Runner, Ryan Priest is Tour Director & Runner, and John McKay is Videographer & Runner. The team will cover 24-30 miles daily. They will be finishing their cross-country tour from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean in Ocean City, MD July 20th.

Along the tour they will be visiting schools, hospitals, hosting events/fundraisers, & meeting with town locals to raise awareness while hopefully leaving everyone inspired.

The goal is to raise a minimum of $300,000 for Sarcoma Cancer research during this tour across the country. All funding raised will bring us closer towards finding an eventual cure for this disease. Partnership & distribution of funding will be with Sarcoma Foundation of America, an established 501c3. All donations are tax exempt.
