1 Day for the K.I.A. 12 Hour Endurance Run

April 20, 2024 8am-8pm

Our primary fundraiser for the Living Legacy Scholarship is the 1 Day for the K.I.A. 12-Hour Endurance Run. Held in the spring each year, it is a 12-Hour Endurance Run in that runners have exactly 12 hours to cover as many miles as they can. As a tribute to the 920+ OSU alumni and others who have made the ultimate sacrifice, we have previously outlined our course with nearly 1,000 remembrance icons, each with the name of a fallen service member.

Runners have exactly 12 hours to cover as many miles as they can. They are allowed to sleep, eat, leave and come back, and even flat out stop running whenever they want to - whatever they want to do get the furthest mileage possible. Due to the rules and structure of this type of run, it simply tests one thing: How far can you push yourself?

We also have a 10K option for those who still want to support us outside of the 12 Hour Endurance Run!

Sponsored Runners: One of our premier fundraising methods is our Sponsored Runners. Before the run, these runners will secure "sponsorships" from friends, family, and anyone who may want to contribute to the cause. By "sponsoring" a runner, these donors are agreeing to donate a specified amount per mile that their runner covers in the 12 hours. With this setup, each literal step forward made by our Sponsored Runners is symbolic of the pain they are willing to endure and their desire to bring positive change upon our deserving families through the Living Legacy Scholarship.

*If you register as a sponsored runner or team, you will need to become a fundraiser when you go through the registration process*

Fundraising: Thanks to the generous contributions of others and the all-volunteer aspect of our team members, 100% of the profits raised through:

  • Sponsored Runner Sponsorships

  • Corporate Sponsorships

  • Day of Race Donations

  • Scholarship Specific Donations

go toward our Living Legacy Scholarship endowment fund. Race registration fees are traditionally attributed to race and organization operational funds.
