The journey, which started January 16, is soon coming to a close - June 2, 2015!

On this date, Race Across the USA Team will arrive in our Nation's Capital! 

We want to thank you whole-heartedly for supporting the cause of childhood inactivity through your generous donations! Each and every penny has helped to fuel this exciting and grueling transcontinental journey every step of the way - 3080 miles total! 

Along the route, Alex and the Team have visited many schools, delivering their message to 1000's of children - sowing seeds of inspiration, fostering a thirst for being active!

Now in the final two weeks, each Race Across the USA Team Member is challenged with raising at least $2000 for the 100 Mile Club (learn more  www.100MileClub.org). If you have not donated to the cause already, please consider doing so now!

Let's help Alex reach his goal down the home-stretch!!!

Alex is close to the half-way point in completing his goal. Along with his personal running equipment needs, Alex and the Race Across the USA team are also raising money for The 100 Mile Club, a national, school-based program with the goal to run or walk 100 miles during a school year. The program teaches life skills, goal setting, while making physical activity a positive lifetime habit! Proceeds will directly sponsor students and program implementation in new and currently participating schools. It now has members in over 700 schools in nearly every US State as well as three other countries – Canada, New Zealand and Japan! More information about the 100 Mile Club® can be found at http://www.100mileclub.com.
