Run 200 miles for Deaf Film Camp

$3,780 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 78 people in 70 months

I am James Yevich, no casual runner. I am what's called an "ultra-runner" and I was also born deaf. I love to keep running forever.  I will run for Deaf Film Camp. 

Deaf Film Camp is a two-week, summer experience for deaf and hard-of-hearing teens looking to pursue a filmmaking career. It takes place at Camp Mark Seven, located in the Adirondacks in Old Forge, NY. You can help a deaf teenager pursue a career in filmmaking by directly supporting a camper. All donations to Deaf Film Camp will benefit operation and activity fees of the two-week session. They made an ASL interpretation of Pharrell Williams's "Happy" video. The video was produced by a team of Deaf campers & staff from Deaf Film Camp 2014 at Camp Mark Seven. The video already spread via TV news.

I completed running 100 miles for 24 hours in Connecticut in October 2012. It was one of my dreams. It was very successful. I never forget. I did run through rain showers, lightening, fog and some ankle pain. The weather wasn't great but it was a great experience. I wasn't going to let it stop me and I kept focusing on my going forward and moving ahead. If it has been a sunny, beautiful day, it wouldn't have had the same experience. I credited my team, who followed me along the way, as a big part of my success. My team was encouraging me and coaching me along the way. It was very emotional at the end and the team all came together and embraced me.

I would like to make another goal this year. It is one of my dreams. I would like to run 200 miles for 48-50 hours . I will start to run at Fort Worth, Texas on Thursday, November 12, 2015 and I will arrive to Austin, Texas on Saturday, November 14, 2015. I will be first deaf runner to run 200 miles.  

Need money for pairs of running sneakers, running clothes, rental RV for crew team, gas transportation, energy foods, waters, flashlights for night, massage therapist, etc. Then donate to Deaf Film Camp.

 Donations & Comments for my support will be greatly appreciated.

It is 31st week of Run 200 miles training. It was 87 degrees (feel like 91) before running. I ran for 5 minutes and walked for one minute (total of 9.3 miles for one hour and 45 minutes). Thanks windy for making me little cool. Important to run smart and take it easy on running. I have 4 more months left to run 200 miles. I am more than ready.

It is 27th week of Run 200 miles training. I brought water, GU energy gel, cereal bar and pop tart (no frosting) while i was running. My part time personal trainer wanted to make sure that I am practicing the same nutrition plan during a long run that I will use for 200 miles. I ran/walk 15.25 miles for three hours. It was 73 degrees before running. After running, it is 86 degrees. It isn't easy for me. I am happy that I made it thru hot weather.

It is 25th week of Run 200 miles training. While I was running on the trails, I saw few rabbits, 2 cardinals, three crows and bobcat. I enjoyed and felt relaxed. Training isn't easy. I have lot of patience. I have 5 more months left. I won't give up on our dreams.
