My name is Jordan Moon. I am an Ultrarunner and USAF Veteran. I left everything I had in Georgia, and moved to Park City, Utah to train for the toughest challenge of my life.
I found that the time to pursue your dreams is now!
My dream is to break the World Record of Running Across America in 42 days or less. We will begin our team effort on 9/2/21, and will try to finish in NYC by October 12, 2021. Traveling a total of 2,953 miles in 41 days. It's a massive goal to achieve, and I want to show the world that anything is possible. I am raising awareness around mental health and brain disease. Our mind is so powerful! Team American Runner has selected The American Brain Foundation to assist in raising money and awareness for brain disease research. Brain disease affects 1 out of every 6 people in our world today. Diseases include Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Dementia, Stroke, Epilepsy, and Brain Cancer. I want to raise as much as I can for The American Brain Foundation! I need your help to break this World Record, and find a cure! Anything is possible when we work together!

The initial fundraising phase will include at least the following that we have yet to cover through sponsorships, and the rest will be donated to charity. We are actively seeking sponsors to help with the mission, and to lessen trip and product costs in order to raise more for the causes. All donors and contributors will be provided full transparency on where funds are spent along the journey. All remaining proceeds from the initial fundraising phase will be donated to our mission of Brain Disease Research. We encourage anyone who can to donate to the foundation directly, and we will have direct links through our website soon.
