Description

Countdown To A Cure is a charity run to benefit the National MS Society. Multiple Sclerosis affects approximately 2.5 million people around the world and around 400,000 in the United States.

My name is Shane Cox, and I was diagnosed with MS in 2009. Two years ago I decided that I would try to give back to those that do so much to help find a cure and aid those with MS, so I began to hold a fundraising event each year. It's become a way of overcoming MS and self-imposed limits. I created a website and named the events Hammer The Wall.

Since then I've run everything from 5K to 100K and biked across PA. This year I decided, with the help of Steve Moore at Run Moore, to attempt to run 100 miles in 24 hours. We talked about holding a larger scale event and how to accomplish our goal of raising money for MS, and with that the Countdown To A Cure event was born!

We're offering several options for people of all abilities to participate and donate to support the event. Runners from the beginner to the seasoned ultra runner are welcome. Please help us find a cure to MS - register, donate, and come out to a great event on a 2.5 mile closed loop with access to a basic aid station on every loop around the former golf course!

24 and 12 hour endurance challenge runners are encouraged to bring along the hydration and fuel of their choice. Although we will be supplying basic aid station supplies and portable restrooms, it's better to be prepared just in case we don't have what you're used to using. Access to the aid station and portable restrooms will be available on every loop.

If you're unable to attend please consider a donation to find a cure. Your support, participation, and donations are met with heartfelt gratitude from myself, Steve, and all of those affected by MS.
