News and media coverage
In the weeks and months leading up to the 50for50 run and in the weeks following it, there was quite a stir around it. Someone attempting to run 50 miles in one day is attention-getting for sure, but when that person is also turning 50 AND running to raise money and awareness for setting 50 people free from human trafficking? Well, you can imagine the conversations that happen after that gets out.
Here are some links to some of the press coverage that came out of the run:
