Hey all,

James (my Significant Other) is taking on a challenge to walk 100 km, raising funds for Doctors Without Borders.

Doctors Without Borders (also known as MSF - Medecins Sans Frontieres) is an international medical relief organization, which brings Doctors, Nurses, Surgeons, and other medical personnel into areas of conflict / poverty / disaster, to get medical care to people who might not be able to access it otherwise.

Many people around the world don't have easy access to medical care. Not just that it's too expensive, or that the doctors aren't sufficiently qualified, but that they may have to travel over 100 km just to get to the nearest clinic. This is a significant barrier to health care, especially for people whose illness might make walking difficult or impossible.

By taking on the challenge of walking 100km by Oct 15, we hope to raise awareness and funds for Doctors Without Borders, so they can bring medical personnel into more areas of need.

The True Dungeon crew is an amazing group of people - I know many of you support charities already, or do walks / runs / fund raising for your own - and those who don't probably do know what it's like to put in a crazy amount of walking in a day (especially with TD's recent move to Lucas Oil!) I ask you to consider donating to this cause even if it's only a few dollars. We're trying to raise $1000 - but that's in CDN funds! - so if any of my awesome States-side friends want to donate $20, it'll actually bring us $26 dollars closer to our goal :)

Thank you for supporting this fantastic organization!

17hrs 45 min over flat terrain. I did 50km in the desert in a little over 8 hours with a light 20lb assault pack.

100km is quite the task to get that distance done in a day. Wear proper footwear, hydrate, and good luck!

Edit: We cheated and did the hike at night on a full moon. Heat was not a factor but the dry air was problematic.

I am impressed. But if I read this challenge correctly, he has until October 15 to hit 100km, not all in one day, correct? Still impressive and still an awesomely wonderful thing to do, but wanted to clarify. Donated what I could.

Wow - that's quite a feat, SK.

Luckily - as Dave pointed out - this isn't all in one day. James has a bit under 4 weeks to get all those clicks in, and he's working hard at it.
