1000 Miles to beat Alzheimer's

1000 Miles to beat Alzheimer's

From Tristan Fithen

I am raising money to fight Alzheimer's. It effects 1 in 3 seniors and kills more than breast and prostate cancer combined. I will be running a mile for every $5 donated to the Alzheimer's Assocation.

Howdy friends, family and supporters! It is way past due for an update! Alex and I moved into a house so our time was pretty busy and I let the posting of updates slide for far too long! The running kept up though and I have run over 235 miles so far this year! In fact, that officially means I have run more miles than my awesome donors have pledged so far! Thank you to everyone who has donated so far and please share with your friends and family. This is an outstanding chance to raise funds and awareness for the fight against alzheimers! Thank you and I will make sure and keep you updated more regularly for the rest of the year!

More Info

Please join me in supporting the fight to beat Alzheimer's disease. All money raised will go directly to the Alzheimer's Association in honor of our friend Brooke Burgher Gibbs. Her life was an inspiration to all who knew her and I want to continue her legacy of caring and raising awareness for Alzheimer's.  

I would like to raise at least $5000 to raise awareness and help to fight Alzheimer's disease. Any races I run will be paid in full out of my own pocket so 100% of your donation will go towards that Alzheimer's Association. 

Please share this page and keep an eye out for updates throughout the year. #outrunalz

Second run of the year in the books after some cold weather! 7.5 miles this morning takes me up to 14 miles total! I am just over 1% of my goal for mileage but all of my awesome donors have me at over 10% for money raised! Thank you all so much! It is very motivating to be running for an awesome cause!

Update #5

A huge thank you to my supporters so far! My awesome friends and family have pledged $295 dollars so far! That means I am committed to run 59 miles for them! That is nearly 3 weeks worth of miles and I can't wait to run them all! Pardon the terrible pun but this is a marathon and not a sprint so every mile counts and every dollar raised will go on to do amazing things! Thank you all for your support!

Happy New Year friends and family! I am starting something big today! Part New Years resolution and part fundraiser. Help me raise money for an awesome cause and make me run 1000 miles in 2018 in the process.

Whether you have a big heart and want to help an outstanding cause or you just want to see me suffer and run a LOT of miles, I would love you to be a part of this! 6.5/1000 miles in the book for the year so far. I need someone to buy the first few miles and get me started on the rest of the way to 1000! Help me to #outrunalz
