The lone runner crosses the Lone Star state border, closing in on 100 marathons! (17/09/2018)

5 of 15 States and 96 marathons down as superhero fundraiser crosses the Texan border in coast-to-coast USA solo run for charity

Real-life superhero Jamie McDonald, who has raised more than $500,000 for children’s charities through bigger-than-life adventures, is more than 2,600 miles into a 6,000 mile coast-to-coast run across the United States, again dressed as a superhero.

Jamie has crossed the state border into Texas, the sixth of fifteen states the adventurer will run through.. To combat the paralysing 50 degree Celsius (120F) desert heat, Jamie is running marathons throughout the night – sometimes clocking up more than 40 miles per run. Since the fundraising adventure began in April, he’s been caught in a monsoon, dodged striking snakes, scorpions and spiders, been ordered to come out of his tent ‘with his hands first’ by a police officer with his hands on his holster and much more.

32-year-old Jamie McDonald, from Gloucester, spent the first nine years of his life in and out of hospital with a rare spinal condition; syringomyelia. Combined with a very weak immune system and epilepsy, Jamie’s health was very poor – his family feared he might lose his mobility altogether. At nine years old, and against the odds, his symptoms eased, allowing Jamie to slowly become more active.

On the 10th April 2018, Jamie began his second coast-to-coast journey that will take him right the way across the United States. He has just a year to finish the nearly 6,000 mile route, before his Visa runs out.

Beginning at the westernmost point of the United States – Cape Alava in Washington – Jamie has so far ran through Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona and New Mexico. He has ran more than 96 marathons.

He’ll travel through many others, including Tennessee, Washington D.C. and New York, on his way to the easternmost point of mainland USA, West Quoddy Head Lighthouse in Maine.

Here is Jamie on TV in an interview at Doernbecher’s Children’s Hospital, Oregon (18th May, 2018):

He can be followed using this live tracker: https://www.jamiemcdonald.org/tracker. The route can be seen both on that page and below – the red is the distance Jamie has already ran.

So far, the adventure has raised more than $24,000 for US children’s hospitals and £35,000 – nearly 15% of the goal total – for Superhero Foundation, a charity Jamie co-founded that grants money to families for treatment they might not otherwise be able to have or afford. Supporters around the world can donate here: http://www.superherofoundation.org/donate/

When temperatures allow, Jamie is running as his alter ego Adventureman, in a custom-made superhero costume designed by then-10-year-old, Conner Reddy.

Running by himself and without a support crew yet again, Jamie has ran through rainforest downpours, camped in places famous for their wild animals, including bears, cougars and mountain lions and ran down busy highways.

Here’s Jamie speaking to popular US show Right This Minute about the challenge:

To this point, Jamie has been wild camping en route when not offered a place to stay by kind strangers. His unbroken running route can be seen on the live tracker developed by and with Microsoft partners including cloud distributor intY and Acacus.

Jamie has so far visited Seattle Children’s Hospital, Doernbecher’s Children’s Hospital in Oregon and Millers Children’s Hospital in Long Beach California. As an international fundraising adventure, 50% of any American donations will go to local children’s hospital in the state donors live and the other 50% will go to supporting other sick children around the world.

He is also stopping in at schools and businesses along the way, delivering motivational talks to help with the fundraising.

PLEASE DONATE HERE

Jamie said,

“I’ve learned to love the desert, even though I’m confident it wants to kill me. I’m not sure what’s worse – the spiders, scorpions, snakes, mountain lions or the heat! But, I’m running hard, and can’t believe I’m already in Texas, my sixth state of the run! I’m told everything’s bigger here, and can’t wait to experience some of that world-famous Texan hospitality.

“At the beginning of this run, just days in, I injured my foot so badly that I thought I’d have to start again. Through careful management and even some barefoot running, I’ve hit more than 2,600 miles – more than a third of the total distance I’ll need to run – in around five months. My maths isn’t great, but that tells me that I have a good shot at making it before my visa runs out.”

He continued,

“I’m doing this to show people, and especially children in situations like I was in, and many worse, that anything is possible, and that you can’t give up on hope and health. I’d like to thank the US so far for taking me in when I’ve most needed it – I couldn’t do this without the kindness of the American people.”

PLEASE DONATE HERE

Before the 6,000 mile coast-to-coast US run:

For the last four years, Jamie, now 31, has been working tirelessly to give back. He’s raised more than £500,000 for children’s charities, hospitals and causes around the world throughout his many adventures. He was named as the Pride of Britain ‘Fundraiser of the Year’ for the west for his effort, among many other accolades.

In the time since his last adventure, Jamie has co-founded Gloucestershire-based Superhero Foundation, a charity that grants money to families for treatment not otherwise available on the NHS. He has also written the best-selling book ‘Adventureman: Anyone Can Be a Superhero’, the story of his life to this point – no mean feat for somebody that struggles with dyslexia, and retook his GCSEs aged 23. All proceeds from the book go to charity.

EDITORS NOTES

Follow Jamie’s social media accounts – he posts daily blogs, videos and photos:

 

 

Superhero Foundation has helped many families, like these mentioned on this Superheroes page.

All money raised in the US will be split 50-50 between Superhero Foundation and state children’s hospitals. Where possible, the money will be diverted to helping families without adequate health insurance.

Adventure history

In 2012 Jamie began an adventurous fundraising quest to give back to the hospitals that helped him as a child by cycling 14,000 miles from Bangkok to Gloucester. Using a second-hand bike bought for just £50, Jamie cycled through more than twenty countries on his way home. During the journey, he was shot at when caught in the middle of a military firefight, arrested by wary border police and slept rough.

Just weeks after returning to Gloucester, Jamie decided to attempt the world record for cycling non-stop on a static bike. Jamie stepped off the bike, as the Marathon Static Cycling – Guinness World Record holder. Cycling more than 12 days, he raised more than £20,000 during the two challenges.

In February 2013, two months after setting the new world record, Jamie used his continued savings to travel to Canada, where he continued his fundraising efforts, again for the children’s charities that helped him as a child. Jamie ran 5,000 miles (equivalent to 200 marathons), across Canada without a support crew – raising more than a £250,000.

His adventures have made news all over the world… (Including in early 2016 where, while traveling from John O’Groats to Land’s End, he and a team of charity cyclists found a woman trapped in the back of her van!).

Dear Jamie, You are amazing.Everything that you have done to help sick children in the world are remarkable acts of kindness and selflessness. Take care of yourself so you can keep doing what you want to do. As one person commented, just running one marathon a year is hard enough for anyone to achieve (physically and mentally) and the fact that you have done over 50 in a few months shows great strength. You are a super hero. But you are human and you must take care of your body (that includes mind and soul). I'll be praying for you every day. I wish you love, peace, health and happiness.

Great Job Jamie, Stay safe and strong and look after Caesar and the Chaffing. Haven’t seen you since Keith’s funeral, but sure he’ll be looking down with great admiration and still convinced how mad you are in equal doses. May Oregan fly by, but with lasting memories. You’re doing so much more than raising money fella. You bring out the best in the people you make contact with. Look forward to week 4. Best Mark

Jamie, a few years ago you did a talk at my college in Stroud about your incredible Canadian challenge and your amazing charity work. It was one of the most inspiring and stories I’ve heard and completely changed my perspective of everyday life. Following your US challenge, continuing with that passion to help those who really need it fills me with so much hope and drives me to help others whenever I can. Very best of luck! :)

You are the best! Not sure if I would have figured that out. What Size do you wear? Rob used to wear "minimals", like a glove for your feet. Not sure if he has any old pair kicking around. If he does and has your size, we can arrange to have them sent to a destination to meet up with you. Good luck in your "bare foot" running.

I have just watched Jamie in sky news (11.10.17) his enthusiasm has inspired me to donate again after I had lost faith in how charities raise money. My son who is not 23 has Williams syndrome and had pioneering ( at the time) and successful heart surgery with pigs artery when he was 4 years old at GOS therefore I would like my tiny and insufficient donation to pass to this hospital which I am sure has suffered lately with donations due to the extremely upsetting case of little Charlie .
