Event Founder:

 Shaun Sullivan ( Sully) - 444 Miles by foot and counting

Hey guys, I started Run the 1 when I realized I was terrible at fundraising and needed to find a way to translate my passion to help the kids of Ubaka U Rwanda through action and not words. Typically I run around 50 miles each year to try and make that statement. However, this event wouldn't be half of what it is without all my friends listed below. I have added their current mileage to date on foot and by bike. The total of miles is calculated at the bottom. We have come quite a long way.

Sponsor Shaun! 


Disclaimer - 

Before I list all of our runners, biker, and supporters I would like to say that I have had the fortunate problem to have so many over the years that this page had to get simplified otherwise it would take me forever to do pictures and bios and such. Some people who joined us, I sadly do not know well enough to include last names so please forgive me. Also if I forgot anyone or messed up your collective mileage, please let me know. Enjoy!
