On June 20, Jeremy Howard will attempt the Fastest Known Time (FKT) of the Long Trail in VT. Specifically, he will attempt to run the 273-mile route in under 6 days completely unassisted. This markedly individual task will test every physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual faculty Jeremy has.

So why would anyone attempt such a feat? In Jeremy's case, he says, "Completing my journey will be much more satisfying knowing I’ve done it while supporting The Play Brigade’s mission to help empower, influence and inspire people with disabilities. I have a brother with Down Syndrome and a family friend with a limb difference. I understand how important it is for them, and countless others, to feel a part of their community.”

To that same end, we'd like to give you 3 opportunities to participate with and support Jeremy:

Nominate or Become an Ambassador:
Running 273 miles is quite the task, but it doesn't compare to the process that so many individuals and their families go through just to gain access to opportunities that so many take for granted. Ambassadors for increasing that access will be of great inspiration to Jeremy and others as he completes the Long Trail. Are you or do you know someone who can speak to the importance of access? Click here to become or nominate an ambassador.

Sponsor an Ambassador:
For a simple $273 ($1 for each mile), you or your organization can sponsor one of our ambassadors and contribute to the Play Brigade's mission of creating opportunities for inclusive play, recreation, and sports, where everyone participates and belongs, regardless of age or ability.

Run, Wheel, or Walk with Jeremy:
No, you don't have to cover 273 miles! But any mile you complete and any dollar you raise will go to enhancing the impact Jeremy is making. Choose your distance - 1-mile, a 5K, a 10K, or a 1/2 marathon; set your fundraising goal (no minimum required); and join us for the first Play Brigade Ambassador Challenge!
