I Ran 7 Ultra Marathons on 7 Continents and Raised $193,000 to Build Schools in Laos, Ghana and Guatemala - AMA!
I'm Joel Runyon. I'm an entrepreneur and athlete. I just finished the hardest challenge of my life - running 7 ultra marathons (any race farther than 42km) on 7 continents to build 7 schools to provide education to kids around the world in Ghana, Laos and Guatemala.
The goal was to raise $175,000 and we ended up raising a total of $193,394 [details here]. All the money goes directly to Pencils of Promise and the schools will be built this fall!
I'm here for the next few hours to answer any questions you have about running, ultras, entrepreneurship, travel, Antarctica, giving back or anything else you want to bring up (as long as we keep it on topic about RAMPART) :)
