4x4x48 for Feeding our Community

About This Campaign

The 4x4x48 challenge, inspired by retired Navy Seal David Goggins, is a challenge designed to raise money and awareness for a cause in need. Five Saline Cross Country Alum, our names are Chris, John, Matt, Simon, and Andrew, and we have decided to attempt this challenge as a way to collect donations for the Ann Arbor Food Gatherers. Although the pandemic is wrapping up and many of our lives are returning to normal, there is still a great need for the resources to combat food insecurity in Washtenaw County! Visit the link below to learn more:

To complete a 4x4x48, we must run 4 miles, every 4 hours, for 48 hours. This will be both a mental and physical challenge, but we are confident we will make it through with the support of our friends, families, and community.

Our challenge will take place in Ann Arbor from the afternoon of Friday, June 18 to Sunday, June 20. Please consider helping us fight hunger by donating, volunteering, sharing this page, and/or joining us on a run!

    Before we take naps, we just want to say how thankful we are for how supportive our friends, family, and community have been throughout this event. We surpassed our initial expectations about how much money we could raise by a massive amount, and seeing how many meals we will help provide is extremely gratifying. It wouldn't have been possible without the retweets, shares, and word of mouth spread by past coaches, family members, or members of the community who barely even know us!

    We wouldn't have been able to finish the challenge as well as we did without the people who came out to run with us and the donors, so thank you all! We had a blast (when we weren't being woken up from naps) and hope to do something similar again!

    This fundraising page will stay open for a few more days so we can continue surpassing our goal!

    Thank you all again and cheers to more than two hours of sleep,
    Chris, Matt, Simon, John and Andrew

      Dogs barking in the woods to the side of the road and the occasional car on the narrow road made this a spooky one. Time to try and catch some Z's

    Only 4 more runs, we'll see how long until we all absolutely crash but we think we've got it! Shoutout to those who came to support at the middle school track at 4pm.
