Run for One Planet BIO

The dream to inspire through running first landed on Matt’s shoulders while on a flight to Detroit in late 2006. At 28,000 feet above the ground, he received answers to questions he’d been
asking since seeing his childhood hero, Terry Fox running his marathon of Hope across Canada.Together with his friend and run partner, Steph Tait, they decided to inspire an entire
continent and realize this dream in a way that had never been done before; by running around it. They founded Run for One Planet (http://www.runforoneplanet.org/) and for the next 18
months trained their bodies, built the team and raised sponsorship support. On May 4th 2008, they hit the ground running and the first of many steps. In 369 days they ran 11,000 miles
across Canada and around the perimeter of America, to inspire a continent of kids big and small, to make one small change for the health of our Planet, one step at a time.“We completed
the final marathon on May 8th, 2009 and realized a long held dream, to be escorted across Vancouver’s famous Lions Gate Bridge under full police escort. The Mayor of Vancouver
proclaimed May 8th as Official Run for One Planet Day in the City of Vancouver and told us we’d become the first couple to run around North America. We smiled, unlaced our 30th pair of
destroyed Asics running shoes and totalled the tour like this:”11,000 miles ran
420 marathons collectively
3 million calories consumed and burned
22 million, four thousand steps taken collectively
369 days on the Run for One Planet highway
50,000 kids reached
220 school and community presentations
$130,000 raised for the “R41P Kids” fund which grants kids “green dreams”. (http://
