    26 Marathons in 26 Days

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Meet Jayson Black -- a man determined to raise money and awareness for the Three Square Food Bank of Southern Nevada. How? He'll run a marathon a day for 26 days. He will run a total of 681.2 miles starting on Nov. 28 and ending on Dec. 23.

    "I've run a lot of miles in one day – 30, 40, 50 miles at a time," he says in an interview done by ChrisMorrow. "But to spread it out 26.2 miles over 26 consecutive days…It’s going to push me mentally and physically."

    ChrisMorrow met Black in Las Vegas, Nev., and she says Black truly cares about people in need. He is raising awareness and money for the food bank. All of the proceeds raised will be going to the organization.

    “I’m an avid runner," Black says in the video below. "I enjoy running. It sets me free and having the opportunity to do something I love while it’s benefitting other people is awesome.”

    Jayson was featured on CNN.com - read the story here.
