Tim Borland was one of those guys who was looking for some way to get motivated enough to get off the couch. He started by going for a jog. As he continued, his body stronger, but so did his mind.
Running became a passion, some would say an obsession. Tim recognized this, and instead of fighting it, he decided to take advantage of his determination by running to serve the needs of others.
He didn't need to look far for inspiration. Thinking of his own children he decided to become a spokesman and advocate for children in need. But even he didn't believe it would ever go this far.
Tim set out on what proved to be a life-changing journey. His purpose and mission was to help the children who suffer from the rare neurological disease called ataxia-telanglectasia (A-T). How did he do it?
While pushing a stroller, Tim ran a full 26.2 miles every single day for 63 straight days in 63 different communities across the U.S. From this experience, he founded an organization called Race For Good. His goal? To harness the energy and dedication of runners everywhere to make a difference in the lives of others.
A-T is something that three-time Olympian Hunter Kemper is also passionate about. Click here to watch our interview with him and find out why he runs to save lives.
