Running in and of itself is a selfish act. But as one of Eric and Paul’s running heroes 2012 Boston Marathon Champion Wesley Korir once told them, running can also be used to raise money to help others or to raise awareness for causes they care about.
One cause that Eric and Paul are passionate about is Rainforest Conservation.
They are just two people, but they want to do their part to make a difference.
As part of their world record attempt, they will be raising money for the Rainforest Trust, a charity dedicated to the protection of threatened tropical forests and endangered wildlife through the purchase of acres of endangered land. Please visit www.rainforesttrust.org for more information.
