Ben Pushka local runner and community volunteer is attempting a feat that few have taken on. In 2020 Ben will attempt to complete 12 marathons, in 12 months, in an effort to raise funds for 12 nonprofits. On January 5th Ben will kick off this year-long endeavor in Jacksonville, running the Ameris Bank Jacksonville Marathon for Mobile Meals’ Weekender Program. The Weekender Program supplies weekend food to impoverished students at 8 different schools in our community.
Ben is asking for a minimum donation of $26.20 which equals one dollar per mile to support The Weekender Program. With each donation of $26.20, you will supply one Weekender Bag for 7 children.
