This morning Dave Proctor started his 66 day journey across the country and we need you to help him along the way. Participate in person at one of Outrun Rare events being held along the way or virtually by submitting a video that will encourage him to keep on running across the country.
Today marked the first day of ultra-runner Dave Proctor's remarkable endeavour to run across Canada in just 66 days and in doing so, breaking the world record. Dave and wife Sharon are no strangers to remarkable endeavours. Like many in our community they support their son Sam who lives with a rare disease and see his remarkable achievements as he overcomes the barriers placed in his way. Inspired by his son, Dave wants to break this running record while raising awareness of the rare disease community and funds for the Rare Disease Foundation.
While we cheer from the sidelines, there are a some concrete things we can do to help him on his way and the Outrun Rare team to support him.
