Objective: To run 100 miles in 24 hours beginning at the steps of the capital building in St. Paul and ending at Cornerstone Church. Should you, Kelly Nesvold, choose to accept this mission you will be challenged with raising $25,000 for the charity Convoy of Hope which will be used to feed 100,000 kids in 11 different nations, including, the Philippines, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Kenya, Ethiopia, Guatemala, South Africa and Tanzania. This will be the only hot meal these kids get each day and it is believed that the children being feed are essential members of their communities who can, one day, become leaders who bring positive change to their countries by breaking the cycle of poverty and hunger. To accomplish this goal, Convoy of Hope uses the daily meal as a starting point to build strong, loving communities that have clean water, healthy living environments, education and livelihood opportunities.

Supplies: One motor home/support vehicle to create a mobile aid station every 5 miles to provide food, electrolyte drinks, water, dry clothing, and pacer change outs. 8 pacers that will run along the route and keep you motivated and on track as well as monitor your vitals and keep you from running into oncoming traffic.
