Fellow G.O.A.T. Larry Kelley will be running two legs of the MS Run the US relay this year for a total of 260 miles. Each 130 mile legs is separated by a mere week. Larry has pledged to raise $10,000 toward the organizations goal of $500,000 and we aim to help help him reach it.

Inspired by Larry and his recent 24 hour marathon on the treadmill, we thought we'd have a little fun host a treadmill challenge beginning Friday, January 25th at 7 p.m. CST to help raise money for Larry's and MS Run the US's cause and would like you take part. 100% of the money raised from the challenge will go to Larry's First Giving account - Read more about Larry here
