Landon Cooper and I am a 34 year young ultra runner. Landon has been running races all over the nation in honor of the spirit of his late friend, Ashley Davis. On November 28th, 2009 Ashley was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma Cancer, she eventually lost her battle and died on April 6, 2011
Cooper formed Miles 2 Give (M2G) in Ashley’s honor as well as to raise money for Sarcoma Foundation of America to create the “Ashley Davis Grant.”
The mission is “simple”, run from the Golden Gate Bridge to the White House beginning on February 14, 2013 reaching the White House on July 4th, 2013. All with design to inspire thousands along the way, while additionally raising money for Sarcoma Cancer Research.
The Miles 2 Give traveling team is composed of 3 runners traveling in a Winnebago RV. Landon Cooper is Founder & Runner. Ryan Priest is Tour Director & Runner. John McKay is Videographer & Runner. The team will cover 24-30 miles daily.
Along the tour they will be visiting schools, hospitals, hosting events/fundraisers, & meeting with town locals to raise awareness while hopefully leaving everyone inspired.
They will be in Illinois starting on June 12th and you can run along with these amazing athletes, help raise money for their cause as well as dedicate dedicate a day to someone special in your life who has been affected by cancer.
