On April 2, 2022, World Autism Day,
John completed his first 50-Mile Race,the AR50.
He placed 11th overall and 2nd in his age division.
Huge thank you to Reed, Darren and Rusty, his amazing pace team who kept him fueled, hydrated and on course to a remarkable finish and to NorCal Ultras for an amazing day.
He is now training for his upcoming 100k (63 miler), the precursor to the 100 Mile Endurance Run.

We aren't a giant corporation.
We are a 100% volunteer nonprofit organization with a giant army of people. Five years ago we started out in our living room with five families and today have served over 400.
We are a family and we hope after watching this 6-minute video you feel like family too.
