Air Force Master Sgt Troy Drasher to Run 720 Miles to Raise Funds for Wounded Warrior Project
Operation 720 is a personal marathon, by Air Force Master Sgt, spanning 720 miles over 30 days. This venture is to raise money and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project.
He has a goal of $5,000 to raise for Wounded Warrior Project. You can donate to this great cause online.
Drasher will start is trek in Aurora, Colorado and run through towns in Colorado like Lamar and Springfied. During his journey, he'll also run through Boise City, Oklahoma and Amarillo, Texas while wrapping up this incredible journey in Abilene, Texas.
Last fall I ran a 1/2 marathon a day for 43 days straight and learned what I needed to adapt to in order to make this happen. This was while working 12 hour days as well! Then up until a few weeks ago, I broke this record again running a 1/2 marathon a day for 2 months, and a few marathons mixed in there on weekends. - Master Sgt Troy Drasher
As you can see, Drasher has been training incredibly hard for this month of endurance that will shed light on the Wounded Warrior Project.
He says he will have a chase team following him and has food covered, but won't turn down a hotel room here and there, if offered. He says all costs of this will come from his own pocket as every dollar raised will go straight to Wounded Warrior Project.
