Running the World!

Raised by 23 people in 6 months
My name is Keri Mandell. I am a yogi, CrossFit coach, runner, and Ironman. As you may be able to tell, I am a fitness enthusiast.  I am always looking for new ways to challenge myself and push my limits. My favorite quote is "life begins at the end of your comfort zone" by Neale Donald Walsh. I try to wake up every day and live by that.

A few years back, I heard about the World Marathon Challenge - An event where competitors must run the standard 42.2 km marathon distance in Antarctica, Africa, Australia, Asia, Europe, South America and North America within 168 hours, or seven days. The clock starts when the first marathon begins in Antarctica. This event started in 2015 and since than 103 people have completed it. I would love to be one of those people.  My goal is to complete this challenge in January of 2020.

I'm passionate, hard working and goal oriented and am always up for a challenge. I would love this to be my next big adventure. This would fulfill a lifelong dream of mine to travel, run the globe, explore new countries, and see all that this incredible world has to offer.

In addition, I'd  also like help to raise money and awareness for  the American Cancer Society . Having lost my dad recently to Multiple Myeloma, I'd liked run this on his behalf. 

To participate in the race I need to raise $52,000. This would cover my airfare to the start and home and the charter plane in between, marathons, meals, accommodations, aid stations, medical support, professional photography and video, medals, souvenirs, merchandise, and the necessary clothing needed to participate in the extreme weather conditions. It will also provide a substantial donation to ACS. 

I’m currently seeking personal and corporate sponsors to help make this dream a reality. I want to continue to surpass my mental and physical limits and see how far I can truly go. I want to help encourage and inspire people to live their best lives and know that anything is truly possible. I also want to help in the fight against cancer by donating proceeds to the American Cancer Society. Will you help me?  I'd truly appreciate your donation and support.

Here's to chasing your dreams!  #Anythingispossible
