One Run For One Life

Running to Raise Awareness and Funds,
One Cause at a Time

One Run For One Life was created in 2019 when I set aside my run from Vancouver to Montréal and, instead, ran 5,000 km on a treadmill to help prolong Derek Johnston’s life by raising awareness and funds to help pay for his living costs in San Diego, CA.

After running for sixty consecutive days at a rate of 84 km per day (two marathons), the experience lit a fire under me and triggered my desire to help more people and live a part of my life in service of others.

While I undertake runs that are out of the mainstream and usually way beyond the marathon distance, I try to promote these events the best I can to have the general public make donations supporting the various causes I choose to help.

If my work inspires you, you can donate to the people or organizations I support while I run. You can also volunteer to help me with logistics, crewing and other tasks. Finally, you can join me and run with me during the event.
