Member News: Scott Rimek, Wesco, to run 4,042 km for Muscular Dystrophy Canada
VICA Member Scott Rimek, Quotations & Project Manager, Wesco Distribution Canada, will be running 4042 km to raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.
This distance is the same as the round-trip distance from Scott's home in Victoria, BC all the way to Los Angeles. To cap off this amazing feat, he will also be competing in the 2019 LA Marathon!
A note from Scott:
Starting March 24, I started a plan to devote the next year to running, training, and again raising money and awareness for MD. In my training I plan to travel the approximate distance from Victoria to Los Angeles, and back again. Approximately 4,000km and then end it by completing the LA Marathon once again. This roughly equals 11km per day, every day, for a calendar year.
My hope is to raise $1 for every km travelled, all documented via my Fitbit and Nike+ Run App.
