About Miles 2 Give, Inc.

Miles 2 Give, Inc. is a 501c3 Non-Profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for Sarcoma. We raise funding for Sarcoma cancer research by completing a team run across or around countries. 2013, in our inaugural year, Founder and runner Landon Cooper, Tour Director and runner Ryan Priest and Tour Videographer and runner John McKay ran across the United States of America to raise funding for Sarcoma Cancer research. 100% of all money raised on tour goes to research.

The 2013 team run started in Ocean Beach, San Francisco, CA on February 14th. Traveling in a 1994 Winnebago called "Life Elevated", Landon and his 2013 road team ran for 157 days all the way to Ocean City, MD. After 157 days of sleeping on the side of the road, and running for 270 Sarcoma Warriors worldwide, the team arrived at the final destination on July 20th, 2013 in Ocean City, MD.

This year in 2014, our Founder & Runner, Landon Cooper, along with his 2014 Miles 2 Give Running Team will begin their run from New York City, Times Square beginning on Tuesday, April 29th at 7:30 AM/ET. From there, Landon & his team will run counter-clockwise around the entire perimeter of the United States to then return back to Times Square in February 2015.

This year, he will be accompanied by Mary Flinders (Videographer & Runner), and countless guest runners from around the world to contribute miles & fundraising. The tour will take about 10 months to complete, covering the East Coast, North Coast, West Coast, and South Coast of America. Only the states on the perimeter will be visited to give miles, and the route will be as close to the coast/perimeter as safely possibly.

In partnership with the Huntsman Cancer Institute, Miles 2 Give will raise funds for the 2014 Miles 2 Give Sally P. McCrorie Sarcoma Research Grant. Dr Lor Randall, Dr Stephen Lessnick, & Dr Jones and their highly respected sarcoma research teams will be awarded funding on completion of the this year's Tour in December 2014. Huntsman Cancer Institute has pledged to match up to $120,000. The goal of the 2014 Running Tour is to raise $500,000 to fund needed sarcoma cancer research.

What is Sarcoma?

Sarcoma affects approximately 12,000 Americans each year. In adults, Sarcoma represents one percent of all newly diagnosed cancers. It is more prevalent among young adults and children, accounting for about 15% of all pediatric cancers.

With early detection and aggressive treatment these cancers can be cured in 60-70% of patients. The survival data over the last 20 plus years has been very stagnant and new methods of treatment are needed to increase patient survival rates. Research is the only way to find new treatments and test their effectiveness in battling these rare tumors.

Medical research is time consuming and costly and funding for sarcoma research is hard to come by. Because only a small number of people are affected it is not exactly a national health problem and government backed sarcoma research grants are minimal. As the genetic basis to these tumors is uncovered it offers hope for those afflicted that more targeted treatments will be developed through ongoing research. Most funding comes from sarcoma or cancer support organizations and fundraising efforts like ours. Help support our mission and considering giving to help find a cure.

A Note From Landon

Miles 2 Give would like to welcome our 2014 Tour runners and guest runners to this year’s pursuit to give & inspire. I salute Ryan Priest & John McKay for joining the 3,187 mile journey across the USA last year for sarcoma cancer research. They will forever be brothers to me & many families worldwide. Thank you Ryan & John for your devoted efforts to heighten needed research funding & your contributions in inspiration to all who followed the inaugural tour.

This year we journey to run 10,000 miles AROUND the USA counter clockwise on the permitter in efforts to raise $500,000 in partnership with Huntsman Cancer Institute. The 2014 tour will conclude 10 months later back in Times Square, New York City.

I hope to see you on tour.

Bless,

Landon
