From Midnight to Midnight we are running a loop in downtown Milwaukee along the lake. There is a main meeting point with food/water, bathrooms, parking, etc. We are also carrying a big flag! So it is very easy to find us and run, walk, or ride with us to help attract attention and raise awareness!
If you cannot join us in the Milwaukee area, then please organize a group in your area!

Dean Karnazes, the “Ultramarathon Man” and most famous distance runner in the world, is also running! His non-profit, Karno Kids – the Runathon’s primary benefiting partner – prevents increasing childhood illness by helping kids be active. 
The GIVE shirt movement is entirely Volunteer-Operated, and increases the global consciousness of giving. We distribute clothing printed with the word “give” and give ALL PROCEEDS to numerous other charities.
