This is Gnarly athlete, Ben Light @ultralight007 .
He runs, a lot.
He might be a little crazy too, but we like him that way.
Ben is about to embark on a truly remarkable project where he'll attempt to complete two races, the Wasatch 100 and the Tahoe 200, back to back. He will have 105 hours to complete 305 miles and 127,400 ft of elevation change. Damn.
More impressive than the miles or the elevation, Ben is working to raise awareness and donations for Neuroworx, a nonprofit, community-based, outpatient physical therapy clinic focused on neurological rehabilitation for individuals experiencing paralysis from spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, stroke, and other neurological conditions. Neuroworx provides this quality-of-life-improving therapy regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.
To help Ben and Neuroworx raise awareness for this project, some of Ben's sponsors (Kogalla, Hylete, Jaybird, Leki, Altra, Costa Vida, Raid Light, Path Projects, Skye Mountain Co. and yours truly!) have put together a giveaway with over $4,000 of prizes going to three lucky winners.
