Posted by Run The Edge on Sep 12, 2017 11:17:24 AM

A month ago we, interviewed one of our Amerithon participants, Jim Powers, to see what it was like doing the challenge as a team. Jim and his wife Deborah Lea-Powers are on a team together, striving to reach the finish line at the Washington Monument. After completing 2,016 miles in 2016 for the Run The Year 2016 Challenge, they wanted to find out how to stay motivated and continue staying active. Not only do they have to complete 3,521 miles to finish the challenge, but they get to virtually travel across the USA as they earn badges for each landmark they pass along the way. Read more to hear what it’s like to do the Amerithon Challenge as a two-person team straight from Jim!

RTY2017 Participant Starts Running to Save Her Friend’s Life

Sometimes external factors are what drive us to make a change. For Rebekah, learning that a former coworker needed a kidney transplant led her on a path that changed her life for the better and is helping her give the ultimate gift — life!

Read Rebekah’s transformation story and how she is going to be a living donor.

Last July, I was perusing Facebook and I saw a post that caught my eye. It was from my friend Chris, an old co-worker of mine from years ago. I only noticed it because he rarely posts anything on Facebook, so I found it odd. It included a picture of a kidney and was asking for help. I thought perhaps a parent was ill and I went on with my day. We had worked together at a very friendly, close, family-oriented restaurant, so many of us stayed friends even after our lives took us elsewhere. That meant that Chris and I have about 40 mutual friends on Facebook.
