Route 66 UltraRun to End ALZ
Our Team Story
Marshall and I are thrilled to present our new race, the Route 66 UltraRun, as a fundraising event to the Alzheimer's Association. We will donate a percentage of each regisration to help End ALZ!
Our true inspiration is always and forever Stray Dog Mark Macy (Mace) and his wife Pam; in spirit, we will always and forever be a part of Team Macy Endure. Now it's time to expand the Team to include each and every participant in the UltraRun through our donation of a percentage of their registration fee, encourage participants to set up their own fundraising joining the Route 66 UltraRun to End ALZ Team, and ask you to make a personal donation today.
As many of you know, Mace was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's in 2018 at just 64 years old. He continues to fight with his "never quit" attitude that is an inspiration to us, and will help keep our participants moving along the Route.
We are honored to announce:
Mace and Pam will be our honored guests at the event
We will award a Macy Spirit Award to one worthy particpant
Mace and Pam will be at the pre-race meeting in Seligman, AZ on November 10, and will stay throughout the event, traveling along Route 66 to support and encourage the runners, their crews, volunteeers, race staff, and everyone they encounter. With them out there, our participants will have the gift of the smile, spirit, and strength not only of Mace, but of their love for each other.
Please join us in the fight to End ALZ!
Your Route 66 UltraRun Race Directors,
We encourage you to watch The World's Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji on Amazon Prime to learn more about Mace, his courageous fight against ALZ, and the love and friendship between Mace, Marsh, and another founding member of Team Stray Dogs, Dr. Bob. Fair warning: have a box of tissues nearby.
