Hello! My names Aaron Pugh and I am a senior at the University of Southern Indiana. My major is Sports Management and I run cross country and track for USI. I have created a running event called Inspire200. The purpose of this event is to share my personal story of adversity being homeless in high school and overcoming that to become a soon to be college graduate in my family. I want to make a positive impact in others lives by showing them that it is possible to overcome adverse situations in life, it is possible to pursue your dreams and to make in impact in the world. My event takes place 2 weeks from now on Wednesday May 14th. I will be taking to the streets running 210 miles from Indianapolis to Chicago to demonstrate this belief in pursuing a higher purpose in life and that is to inspire others lives to do incredible things. It doesn't have to just be running. I am combing my passion for running with my need to make an impact in the world. I will begin from Soldiers and Sailors Monument in circle city Indianapolis @ 8:00 a.m. and will end the following Saturday evening on May 17th at Millennium park in Chicago Illinois.
Please help me spread the word in my efforts to change the world. Feel free to check out more information regarding my event.
