7 marathons..7 continents...7 weeks

Claire from Hope Runs left a comment on my shoes post stating that they are still looking for applicants for the 2010 777 team.

What is the 777 team?

From their website:
"In 2010, Hope Runs will be leading a Guinness World Record-breaking endeavor to complete 7 marathons on 7 continents in only 7 weeks. With a team of dedicated runners, physical therapists, and doctors, we are committed to breaking some fantastic Guinness World Records. We are also proud to be running a green event through carbon-emissions-offset sponsoring.

The Hope Runs 777 Challenge will help bring the issues facing the 14.5 million AIDS orphans in Africa alone to the forefront of the world̢۪s consciousness. By pushing ourselves to the limit, our team will raise awareness for the issues facing orphaned and vulnerable children (OVCs) all over the world, mobilizing people everywhere to become more involved. With each member of the team covering his or her own costs and committing to raise thousands more toward the cause, this effort will help to make a lasting impact in places that need it most."
