HERO Charity Run

During the pandemic, I started running … and I never stopped. Since June 1, 2021, I’ve been running every single day, at least a mile a day. In the process, I’ve racked up more than 1,000 miles, raised more than $7,000 dollars for more than 10 different causes, returned several lost items, and logged runs in 12 different cities. And, yes, I’m still going. Want to help? Let’s do this! See link below. Also, follow my hashtag across all social media (#sekouherocharityrun) for more opportunities to give.
