Bear Lake Ultra Marathon


Join Tommy as he participates in the Bear Lake Ultra Marathon, a 24 hour run that he will use to raise donations for MTJMe. Runners will be challenged and rewarded as they loop their way along rolling hills on single-track trails and wide groomed trails, with a few wooden bridge crossings on the 3.1 mile trail. 

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). Tommy 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

a word from Tommy

On Sept 29th and 30th I will be participating in the Bear Lake Ultra Marathon, which is a 24 hour run.

This means that for 24 hours I will be try to see how many miles I can complete on a 3.1 mile loop. A full loop must be completed for the miles to count.

I've done some 24 hour walks before and had some amazing people accompany me (Crystal Raney-IveyNicole SkorichTimothy Ettridge) and have completed 45, 52, and 60 miles.

My goal for this 24 hour run is 100 miles. Yup....100 miles in less than a day. I won't sleep and I hope to hit my mark but honestly I need your help.

Motivation is a tricky animal, but it can make the mind and the body do some crazy things, so I am asking you for motivation.

I will be fundraising for the More Than Just Me Foundation to get funds for our programs that benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Community!

How can you help?
-Donate per mile (a penny, a dime, a quarter, a dollar, FIVE DOLLARS) You pay your donation times the miles I complete in 24 hours. Maybe its 50, 70, 100 or more. Time will tell.

My goal is to get $100 per mile. You can be a part of that. Also if you donate $1 or more per mile you will get a special edition MTJMe tee that can only be obtained through this fundraiser!

The TOP five donors will get one of our rarest gifts in the MTJMe community and that is one of our Limited Edition Everest Coins. Each one is numbered and only so many were made.

So I ask you please to be apart of this journey and adventure as we drive awareness to Cystic Fibrosis and be bigger than yourself.
