Chris Mintz is fundraising for KidsAbility.

ENDURrun doesn’t have a problem making people sweat, but Mintz has taken it to the next level with this amazing fundraising campaign. You’ve probably seen these challenges all over social media for the past month, and it just keeps getting better.

The stakes get raised

Beyond the campaign, knowing Mintz, he had obviously planned to enjoy a casual rookie year. Then his training partner Trish Benoit – having run the ENDURRun Ultimate in 2017 – challenged him to beat her times. With each stage time he beat, she would donate $20 to KidsAbility. As a bonus. If he could beat her cumulative time, there would be a $50 added donation at the end of the race.

After three stages Mintz has earned $60 for KidsAbility from Trish and has an 15:08 lead on her 2017 time. The stakes got raised for Stage 5 – not only is Chris chasing her 2017 but she is also running the stage for the Running Rarebits relay team – and he is chasing her in real life!

At the time of writing, Chris is 90% of the way to the goal on his fundraising page, and we suspect this is not done yet!!
