Community Athlete: Mosi Smith at Badwater 135 Mile Ultramarathon
July 16, 2012 @ 8:00 am - July 18, 2012 @ 5:00 pm
Death Valley, CA – Community Athlete, Marine Captain Mosi Smith will take on the Badwater 135 Mile Ultramarathon July 16-18, 2012 to raise awareness and support for the Semper Fi Fund. A notoriously brutal race, the Badwater covers 135 miles (217km) from Death Valley to Mt. Whitney, CA in temperatures up to 130 degree Fahrenheit. It is considered the most demanding and extreme running race on the planet.
This run is part of a long-term fundraising campaign that Capt Mosi Smith and Captain Robert Hillery launched in 2010 — they call it “1 in 10” campaign.
They request two simple things:
First, that you pledge to donate $1 for every race they complete. That’s it, just $1!
Second, that you pledge to tell five people about our fundraising campaign and ask them to do the same.
Their goal is $1 million! 100% of the donations go to help injured Marines.
You can support Mosi’s efforts by donating on his Campaign page or by giving through our Donate page!
