Races2Run, in partnership with IFA Virtual Racing, is inviting you to participate in a 55 day Virtual Walk/Run! Do the Delaware 96 with Michael Wardian or the Delaware 35 (the width of Delaware). Michael is looking to help raise funds for those in need. Those who have no food on the table. Those who do not have money to pay rent.
Michael and his family live in Arlington, Va and have family in Rehoboth Beach. I got to know Michael as race director for the Delaware Marathon which he has won 4 times. I also see him at our Ten Sister Series in Dewey Beach or at a Seashore Strider event in Rehoboth. Michael sent me the article below. With his 96 mile run he hopes to raise funds for this very worthy cause. Two other food pantries will also accept funds via this challenge. The Ministry of Caring in Wilmington and Cape Henlopen Food Basket in Rehoboth Beach
