Goal: $10,000 (100/mile)
Join John as he participates in the Indiana IT100, a 30 hour, 100 mile run that he will use to raise donations for MTJMe. The course is a 20 mile mixture of wide and narrow trails - from rolling hills, dirt, and off-camber grass sections. There will be very little road running on the course. The terrain and woods provides protection from the wind. Most of the trails surround the lakes.
How can you help?
Currently, we’re looking for sponsors to commit to a "per mile" amount (ie: $1 mile commitment x 100 miles = $100). John is reaching for the stars this year with a goal of 100 miles at $100/mile! To pledge your commitment or for more information, please reach out to Tommy@mtjm.org.

a word from John
My name is John Burkett, father, husband, filmmaker. I’m also am a friend of Tommy Danger and filmed him during his run across the country, climb of several of the seven summits, and produced MTJMe TV. October 13th, and 14th I will be attempting to run 100mi trail run at the Indiana IT100. https://ignitetrailseries.com/indianatrail.html#data Often on my training runs I would think of my friends with CF. I would think of the simplicity of how special it is just to breath and be. It also makes me realize that it isn’t the amount of time we are given but the quality of the time here and I’m constantly reminded of that by you incredible CFers. I want to do what I can to give back to you for all that you have done for me. I am asking you to donate friends what ever you can per mile for Cfers. Not to find a cure because others are doing that but the simple things like fuel cards to get to an appointment, or help paying for medication. CF is not only tough on a family for the stress of having a terminal disease but it destroys finances. I hope I can help to lift just a little of that burden for people.
