777 is an adventure and challenge to run 7 ultras marathons on 7 continents in order to build 7 schools and do the impossible.

Some people might think this is impossible, but for a huge amount of people in the world today, getting something as basic as an education is actually impossible.

PoP is doing something about it & that's why I want to help.

By creating schools and curriculums for students without any other options, they're not only providing a roadmap for them to break the cycle of poverty, but they're also creating opportunities. They're taking the impossible and drawing a massive line through the whole word.

That's why it's important. That's why I'm doing this.

They've built over 200 schools in the past 5 years. Last year, we built one in a small village in Guatemala. But, in tune with keeping with the theme of pushing our limits & doing something on the edge of impossible - something that scares the crap out of you - we're aiming higher.

7 Ultra Marathons

7 Continents

7 Schools

There's such a huge need across the globe for a basic starting point. PoP helps create possibilities for students through education and if I can make a small dent in such a huge need - it will all be worth it.

It's happening. I'd love for you to be a part of it.

Pencils of Promise works with communities across the globe to build schools and create programs that provide education opportunities for children, no matter where they were born, or what resources they have. Pencils of Promise has broken ground on over 150 schools throughout Laos, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Ghana. 

Education is a cause that's truly important to me, so I'm excited to join the Pencils of Promise movement that empowers lives around the world by increasing access to quality education for children in the developing world.

Please help me reach my fundraising goal by donating today. Just $25 allows Pencils of Promise to give a child access to education for one year. Thank you for your support. Everyone has promise. Education unlocks it.
