**UPDATE** Wow thank you to everyone who has donated. We quickly surpassed my goal of $1000 raised. I am going to cap my run at 100km's. I am not sure if I can even do 100km in a single run but I will give it my best effort. The tentative date for this run is Saturday, Nov 28th at MRSS Track.

Every $10 raised will add 1 km to my run. For example, if I raised $200, I would run 20km in a single run. I will run 50km if I raise $500, or 100km if I raise $1000. If you want to make me suffer and run more, donate more money!

Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men's health, and this Movember I'm joining them. Together we can make a difference for men's health – in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Help me stop men from dying too young.

I am looking to raise money to make a difference in men’s health. Like many of us, I have friends that have struggled with mental health and sadly this has taken their life. This is in honour of them. Testicular cancer is also something I want to raise awareness for. A year ago I found a lump and was embarrassed to see a doctor. Eventually, I saw one. The experience wasn't that bad, and getting an ultrasound was fine too. It was not cancerous, but that scare made me want to educate people and raise awareness.

To challenge myself and show what the human body is capable of, I am going to add 1km to a run for every $10 I raise. For example, if I raise $500 I will attempt to run 50km in a single run. If I raised $1000 I would attempt to run 100km. This would be 12 to 15 hours of non-stop running. I have done a 65km run so this would be quite the challenge. I would love it if people would join me for a km or two on my run.

I am planning to do this run Saturday, November 28th *This is tentative depending on weather and my body* I will post a schedule close to the date if this is confirmed. I have Ideas to do a 100km loop, run 40km followed by loops at the track at MRSS, or do 250 laps at MRSS and have people join me at any time even if it's for just one lap.
