On Saturday, January 9th, 2021, starting at 2am EST, Cole ran from the NJ High Point Monument through the length of New Jersey, ending at the Cape May Lighthouse. The final distance was 197.22 miles and he finished in 44:42:21.
At the outset, Cole set a goal to raise funds for the Road Runners Club of America, Kids Run the Nation Program. Thanks to you and hundreds of others from across the country, we raised $7,129 as of 2/3/2021!
In addition to donations, we received loads of race support all along the course. Many folks came out to give us food, to check on Cole’s health, to run with him, to cheer us on, and to even doctor up his feet! We realize now that we absolutely could not have achieved this goal without all of your support. We can’t say it enough – our family is deeply humbled and grateful for the outpouring! THANK YOU!
– Cole, Ashlee, and Chuck
