NEVER GIVE UP 24 Hour Challenge
NEVER GIVE UP 24 Hour Challenge for charity. This is the first of a two part 24 hour challenge series (please see LIFE GOES ON 24 Hour Challenge). This challenge can begin between October 2021 through March 2022. Run or Walk 1.1 mile every hour for 24 Hours! That’s a total of 24 runs for a 26.2 miles. That is equal to a marathon. $45 includes a finisher's shirt and 10% is provided to The Baldwin Fund; as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. The Baldwin Fund's mission statement from their website: "The Baldwin Fund, supports both new and established researchers investigating the causes, prevention and treatment of breast cancer. This research will include — but not be limited to —studies of the genetic, molecular, cellular and environmental factors involved in the development and progression of breast cancer; application of the knowledge thus gained to educate medical professionals and increase public awareness for the prevention, detection, treatment and advocacy for the patient of breast cancer; and studies of the outcomes of breast cancer detection and treatment on the patient, their families and society."
