On February 14, 2013, at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Landon Cooper and the Miles 2 Give organization will set out on a journey to run across the U.S. Landon will average 21 miles per day, for 150 straight days, until reaching his final destination of Ocean City, MD in mid-July. Why would anyone want to run across the country? Well, for Landon it’s to honor a fallen friend and to help raise funding for Sarcoma Cancer research. As he describes it, this journey is the “pursuit to give and inspire”. He decided to make the cross country run over 150 consecutive days, because it’s symbolic of the battle that cancer patients and their families and friends have to endure.
“Cancer patients and their families don’t have the option to clock out from their battle, so I won’t either. There will be many dark days on this journey, and I’m sure I will hurt and feel very tired at times, but giving up won’t be an option. Those patients and their families can’t give up. We can’t give up in our pursuit to find a cure. So I won’t give up, and I won’t be clocking out as I wage my battle against this disease”
Along the way, Landon will visit hospitals, schools, cancer patients and those who have been affected by this disease, town mayors, radio stations, news stations, and anyone who will listen to his message. Long story short, this is an extremely powerful story. Landon is on a mission, and Sloy, Dahl & Holst, Inc. is honored and proud to stand behind him on his journey.
