Running from Vancouver to Montréal
An epic 5,000 km run across Canada
From June 1 to July 31, 2020
My name is Patrick Michel. On June 1, 2020, I'll start a 5,000 km run from Vancouver (BC) back to Montréal (QC). This massive run across Canada will span over 60 consecutive days, at the insane daily rate of 84 km per day. Yes, that’s two marathons per day, on asphalt and gravel. Over the Rockies, across the Plaines, around the Grand Lakes, all the way back to Montréal. Sound crazy, right? It is. But nothing great has ever been accomplished without hard and brave work.If you have any questions:

Raising Awareness and Funds for XXXX

Why I’m doing this
I’m undertaking this monumental run to raise awareness and funds to fight XXXX. I firmly believe that if people get together and focus on this very important cause, we can move the needle substantially and offer much needed financial assistance to those who desperately silently scream for help.
How much do I want to help raise?
The total amount I want to raise for this cause is around $XXXX. I know it’s possible, but only with your help. Whether you donate $10 or $1,000 or if your company elects to sponsor the event to help me put it together, every little effort counts. Alone we are but one drop, together we have the force of an ocean!
My promise to you
I’ll be running alone and unsupported, which means that I’ll run through absolute misery, carrying everything I need to run, camp, and eat. But my promise to you is that I will overcome everything and anything thrown at me during this 5,000 km humanitarian mission. In addition to the thousands of kilometers I’m currently covering in training to prepare, I’m putting everything I am and everything I own on the line for this event. I’m committed. I’m all in. This is how I believe I can help raise as much awareness as humanly possible to inspire people to donate and support this cause. Those who already know me, know that I don’t do half measures!
