Pledge a mile. Post a #Selfeet. Defeat Brain Cancer.

BethAnn Telford, a fearless endurance athlete living with brain cancer, has helped raise more than $835,000 for brain cancer research and with her participation in the World Marathon Challenge she hopes to reach her ultimate goal of $1,000,000.

The World Marathon Challenge is an amazing logistical and physical challenge to run seven marathons on seven continents in seven consecutive days. A challenge that can be found on the 7 ultimate achievements in endurance running list and the one that only 560+ people have accomplished in the world.

From January 23-29, across 183.4 miles, BethAnn will be wearing hand-designed New Balance shoes dedicated to 14 brain cancer survivors living in different areas around the world.

By pledging a donation towards every mile BethAnn accomplishes you will be helping to support ABC² (Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure), a Washington DC-based venture philanthropy nonprofit organization that drives cutting-edge research and treatments for brain cancer & brain tumors.

All pledgers will receive a pair of #Selfeet to Defeat Brain Cancer Shoelaces. You can help raise awareness of brain cancer and the need to fund more research by posting pictures of your #Selfeet shoelaces and tagging 3 friends on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using #Selfeet.

All of the proceeds from this campaign will go directly to ABC² to benefit researchers that push the limits of science and technology. ABC² has awarded more than 100 grants totaling over $20 million to world-renowned researchers and physician-scientists from 54 institutions.
