40 DAY CHALLENGE - Aug. 29-Oct. 8, 2016 - ONE GOAL. running 1200 mile to raise awareness for people with severe physical disabilities

From August 29-October 8, 2016, Tim Wambach, Founder of Keep On Keeping On (Team KOKO), is challenging himself to the ultimate test of endurance - he is running 1,200 miles between Orlando, FL and Chicago, IL. Tim's goal is to continue to raise as much awareness and community support as possible on behalf of those living with severe physical disabilities. We ask that you join Team KOKO in this effort by committing to your own unique 40-day challenge. By joining this movement, together we will succeed in improving the lives of those who need our help most. 

Founded in 2007, the Keep On Keeping On Foundation is dedicated to assisting those with severe physical disabilities, and educating and empowering all others to make a difference in their community.
