Vincent Award #20: Brandon Yonke

This week's Vincent Award goes to Grand State University junior Brandon Yonke. Brandon was chosen by MS Run to be one of 16 runners that will run from Los Angeles to New York. This group of 16 runners will each run a leg of the route. Brandon's leg will start on April 26th in Las Vegas and end 240 miles later in Milford, Utah. That's the equivalent of 9 marathons all in a row. I'm giving Brandon the Vincent award BEFORE he has even run because I think he has already shown his conviction by training every single day outside in Michigan...brutal! Good luck with your run Brandon (as well as the other 15 runners), but in my book you have already won by putting mind over matter with the training you have done.

The original story can be found at WWMT.com.

You can track Brandon's progress on his Wordpress blog here.

Most importantly, you can donate to the National MS Society through Brandon's fundraising page here.
