Roy Weigand is an avid ultra-distance runner and Los Angeles resident who has finished three 100 mile runs, and one 250 mile Solo run for Lifewater International. The money raised has provided clean water access for hundreds of people in rural Ethiopia. He also staged four ultra distance runs for the Michael Hoefflin Foundation, which provides support to families dealing with pediatric cancer. In the Summer of 2018 Roy ran 135 miles through Death Valley, ending on Mount Whitney, a journey considered to be the worlds toughest running challenge. He is inspirational to say the least!This year, Roy has chosen to “Save Lives, Two at a Time™” by running 100 miles in support of veterans and dog rescue in 24 hours.
Shelter to Soldier is a CA 501c3 nonprofit organization that adopts dogs from local shelters and rescue organizations and trains them to become psychiatric service dogs for post-9/11 combat veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and other injuries associated with traumatic service experiences.
Beginning at the Los Angeles Rams Training Camp at the University of California, Irvine and traveling through Irvine, south to Laguna Hills, San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente, Camp Pendelton and neighboring communities, Roy will cross the finish line at Shelter to Soldier’s training facility in Oceanside, CA.Click Here to view the full event flyer.
