A day of storms devastated the state...
An epic run will help build it back...
A little help is all we need...
On October 22, I'm going to start the Alabama Relief
Run as a tornado relief fundraiser. It will be a run from
Gulf Shores, AL, to the Alabama-Tennessee line just
north of Huntsville, in an effort to raise money for
victims of the April 27 tornadoes. My route takes me
through Tuscaloosa, Hackleburg, Phil Campbell,
Lawrence County, Limestone County, Harvest, and
other areas affected by the storms.
I'll average around 50 miles per day, which will allow
me to complete the 454-mile trek in 10 days. All money
raised will go to Habitat for Humanity, which will use it
to rebuild two houses, one in Tuscaloosa and one in
Phil Campbell. I'll actually get to run by the house in
Tuscaloosa as it's being constructed, and I'll get to
run by the plot in Phil Campbell.
Anyone who would like more information or who is
interested in sponsoring or donating please feel free
to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

An avid ultrarunner for the better part of a
decade, John has run races ranging in
distance from 100 meters to over 100 miles.
After the April 27th tornado outbreak, he
saw a way to use his somewhat eccentric
pastime to benefit those still cleaning up
after the storms.
