How did Miles 2 Give begin?
It all began when Landon, along with three other guys, ran a marathon relay in February 2010 for a friend of his who was battling sarcoma cancer. The friend died a year later, and Landon would continue to run in her honor in all his subsequent races. Inspired, Landon launched his Miles 2 Give foundation in November 2012 to raise awareness of sarcoma cancer and generated funds for it by completing two team runs across the USA in 2013 and 2014. He continues to be grateful for M2G generous sponsors and supporters.

In April 2014, Landon and three runners started in Times Square, New York City and completed a 4,000+ mile team run all the way to Ocean Shores, Washington. Many guest runners contributed to the completion of the coast to coast run. From Washington, a lap around the perimeter of the USA was completed that was focused on events, visiting cancer families, and speaking engagements. The 10,000 mile lap back to Times Square was completed in December 2014.
