Katie will be running 143 miles in 5 days from Milwaukee, WI to Valparaiso, IN beginning July 14th. Katie runs in loving memory of her mom, Shirley, who passed away in 2009 from complications of Multiple Sclerosis. Our virtual 5k event is set to run in honor of Shirley's birthday, May 19th. Every step ran this week will be to remember the amazing person she was and all those who still continue to fight this disease.
The MS Run the US – Relay is American’s first, only and longest annual relay run across America. We do this epic 3,260 mile run to STOP MS! The Relay begins each year in April in Santa Monica, CA and finishes in August in New York, NY. Our Relay runners are hand- selected via our online application process to participate as one of 19 individuals on our relay team. To participate, each runner commits to fundraising $10,000 and to running 160-miles over 6 days during his or her assigned relay segment. There are 19 segments total panning from California to New York. Each runner’s segment is coordinated back-to-back with their teammates in an effort to run 3,260-miles in 4.5 months. Crazy, huh?!
