It is said that to really understand someone, you need to walk a mile in their shoes. There are over 300 million children worldwide who do not have shoes or own adequate footwear and I intend to walk and/or run thousands of miles in their honor, BAREFOOT.
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.
