This August I will be running 517 miles to gain support for the Michigan Tech Rowing Club, as well as motivate people to get outside and get moving.
It would be awesome if you took the time to check out my website: http://run2live.webs.com
I'm really floundering in the dark right now looking for support, so any suggestions you have are welcome!

I am floundering from the perspective that I've never done such an event before, let alone organize it. I am about four months away from starthing this run, and I still don't have a complete team put together. Given that I will be following major roads, this isn't a huge deal, BUT I do need at least a couple of people to come with me and donate their time to make sure I won't die (XD). I have about four months to raise money, which seems like a fair amount of time, but really isn't when I am currently a full time student, and will be taking on an internship, school, and a job over the summer. I am not quite sure how to gain support for this event. I've talked with several newspapers, which is a good start, but they won't run the story until closer to July, and then I only have a month to gain support off of that article. I guess right now all I am asking for is for word of mouth. I just need help spreading news of the event. Even if someone isn't willing to donate, they might tell someone who is willing about what I am doing. And this isn't just about running up to school in the spring. It is also about a much bigger project I am undertaking, starting in spring of 2015. I need to start gaining support for that expidition now, given the amount of money and planning that will need to go into it (pole to pole). So, I guess the best way you could help is by just helping me to gain support.

A good friend once reminded me of the old addage, "It's not what you know, it's who you know." I happen to know a few people. I'll do some networking and see what I can do. If nothing else, my big mouth will definitely spread the word and then some! You have my support!
