He ran seven marathons on seven continents in seven days.
Let that sink in for a minute.
Here are some eye-popping stats, thanks to our colleagues in Australia New Zealand and Vesna Zailac’s blog post on USANA, word!
- All told, Mike ran 295.4 kilometers (183.5 miles)
- Mike burned more than 22,000 calories in the last week
- Mike ran the Casablanca leg of his epic feat in the middle of the night, finishing at 1:30 a.m. due to a delayed flight
Aside from the 777 Project being a tremendous feat of athletic ability and endurance, it also proved to be an outstanding humanitarian mission.
Mike ran with an overriding goal to support the needy children of New Zealand and give hope to some of the 270,000 who live in poverty, according to his charity of choice KidsCan.
Take a look at Mike’s finish-line video he shared on the 777 Project Facebook page.
USANA complements Mike’s 777 Project mission on both accounts. From the purely athletic standpoint, USANA’s nutritional products helped fuel his marathons. And from a philanthropic view, the USANA True Health Foundation contributed $10,000 NZ to Mike’s fund-raising efforts.
As he explains to TV New Zealand, this past week definitely one neither Mike nor his thousands of supporters around the world will ever forget.
From all of as at USANA, we’d like to congratulate Mike on a spectacular accomplishment and to thank him for helping change lives.
