Last year, Jessie Kwasney decided to raise money for Synqwelmistn, an incredible Non-Profit organization, https://www.snqweylmistn.org/. The focus of the organization is to nurture indigenous communities through experiential learning and traditional lifeways. The organization will provide seasonal programming, ultimately developing a Salish immersion community for foster children of the Flathead Reservation in Montana. Jessie decided the best way to do this was to run alone (minus the support of people coming to run a lap or two throughout the night) for 24 hours on a 400m track (the river bowl). Jessie raised money by gathering pledges for every lap he completed, and one-time donations. After 24 hours, and over 70 miles ran, the total money raised was over $12,000.
Our goal has expanded this year. We aim to do a couple things. We want to create an event that can potentially raise an incredible amount of money for Synqwelmistn. We also want to provide the Montana running community an opportunity to take part in Missoula’s first, and only annual 24-hour run. We want this to take place on a track, so individual runners can raise money by taking pledges per lap they run, as well as one-time donations. We will accept donations from businesses as well. Our future vision is to have this be a premier event in Missoula while building a community of athletes, volunteers, and local businesses coming together for a rad cause!
