Late night, car wreck, alcohol….children have lost a 27 & 28 year old father. A shiver crosses my heart and a sick feeling enters my gut.

Come Along For The Run
The goal? To complete a marathon in all 50 states, raising money for Big Brothers & Big Sisters.
I invite you to experience the journey along with me through the interactive map below.
Blue= marathons I’ve already completed.
Green= marathons scheduled for this year.
HOW CAN I SUPPORT?
The easiest way to support Marthon4Kids is to join the Buck-A-Mile club. As a Buck-A-Mile Club Member, you will make a charitable donation of $26.20 to match every mile I run at the conclusion of each marathon. No need to keep track, I will email you when I complete a marathon with a link for you to make your donation.
In return for your donation, you will receive M4K swag and bragging rights, but more importantly, you will know that you have helped Big Brothers Big Sisters match more at-risk kids in our community with a caring, adult mentor.
To sign up for the Buck-A-Mile Club, complete the form below and a representative from Big Brothers Big Sisters will contact you to review your payment options and answer any questions you may have.
