How It Works

One person (Blake Dirickson) will run a full marathon by himself.
The other 5 treadmills will be available to teams of people who will collectively run a full marathon.
Each runner will hopefully find a sponsor to sponsor their run, or you can sponsor yourself.

UNICEF USA for Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief
On September 20th, Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico, causing devastating results to the island, and more specifically, the children and families that call it home. Still without power, accessible roads, and potable water, they are in desperate need of our help. In just a few hours, Maria wiped out approximately 80 percent of the crop value in Puerto Rico - making it one of the costliest storms to hit the island - an estimated loss of $780 million in agriculture yields.
After mobilizing to get immediate critical support — Emergency Relief Kits — to the children of Puerto Rico, UNICEF USA has been partnering with UPS and Governor Cuomo to rush shipments of fresh drinking water to families across the island. UNICEF USA and the Governor’s office are continuing to assess current and long-term needs of children and families, determining how to best support local partner organizations.
With your donations to the Treadmill Marathon, you can support UNICEF USA’s ongoing rebuilding efforts in the most efficient way possible.
On behalf of the children and families in Puerto Rico, thank you for your interest and support.
“The devastation in Puerto Rico has set us back nearly 20 to 30 years.”
— Puerto Rico Resident Commissioner Jenniffer González
