Milwaukee, WI...Multiple cities/locations
On Saturday August 23rd, people throughout the world are participating in the Annual Worldwide 24-hour Runathon to Raise Awareness and Money for Health and Giving. Many are doing something active that day (walking, running, biking, swimming, etc.) for a time period or distance of their choice. Many are donating money to - or raising money for - whatever good cause they choose. Many are spreading the word about the event, and its purpose, in any way they can imagine. Some are training to challenge themselves to do something they have never done, which also helps increase the awareness of health in others, and motivate others to donate. Some, such as Thomas Budde, Ph.D. – Founder/Operator of theGIVEshirt.com, are doing all of the above! Dr. Budde, who is also the Creator and Organizer of the Runathon, is running all 24 hours non-stop from Midnight to Midnight in Milwaukee, WI, USA.

The event is free, and participants are encouraged to donate to - or raise money for - the 100% Volunteer-Operated 501c3 non-profit GIVE shirt movement, Karno Kids (the events’ primary benefiting partner), or another charity of their choice.
The GIVE shirt movement donates ALL of its proceeds to a wide variety of other charities, leaving no funding to get the word out about this extraordinary event.
