Most Barefoot Marathons, Guinness Record
In order to raise awareness for these poor children, I will attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for "Most Barefoot Marathons Run in One Year". To set the record, I will need to run at least 50 barefoot marathons at a distance of 26.2 miles each by December 31, 2014. As of July 3rd, I have already set a new Guinness World Record with 50 marathons completely barefooted. However, I will continue to pad this number to reach 100 barefoot marathons before the end of the year.
Please help me raise money to provide these impoverished children with valuable protection from harmful wounds and infectious diseases. Through the Soles4Souls charity program, 100% of your donation will go towards providing a pair of shoes to poor children living in the Philippines and the Pacific Islands.
And, just as important, millions of people who otherwise have never heard of Soles4Souls have now been made aware of the plight of the 300+ million children worldwide who do not have shoes or lack adequate footwear through my quest for world records and the publicity it generated. I am pleased to have successfully achieved the following in 2014:
1) Most barefoot marathons run on consecutive days with 10
2) Most barefoot marathons run in a year with 101
3) First and fastest to complete a barefoot marathon in all 50 Sates in one year
4) One of only 6 people to complete a marathon in all 50 States in one year
5) One of only 15 people to complete 100+ marathons in one year
6) Awarded the prestigious "GSPN Athlete of the Year" for 2014
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
A huge HEARTFELT THANK YOU to Soles4Souls, Inc., Peter Cowles of Seeds of Dignity Ministries, and most especially to the generosity of all of you for making this happen.
Thank you, Maraming Salamat and Si Yuus Maase!
To date, I have already raised almost $7,000 from two websites. My goal is to raise $30,000 which means that I am already close to 25% of the way there.
As I am nearing my goal in setting a new Guinness World Record, I am asking for your moral support by making a small monetary donation to Soles4Souls. Your gift will make a world of difference to children living in the Philippines whom I am scheduled to distribute over 1,000 pairs of brand new Sketchers to children ages 5 to 10 years old in Palompon, Leyte, this coming August. Your donation will go a long ways towards providing shoes for those poor kids whose hometown was ravaged by Super Typhoon Yolanda.
Thank you and God Bless!!!
