We are delighted to have the com­pany of the liv­ing leg­end Stan Cot­trell join­ing us today to dis­cuss Global friend­ship run project. Ultra Dis­tance Run­ner Stan Cot­trell has taken on per­haps what is the most sig­nif­i­cant chal­lenge of his life as Friend­ship Sports Asso­ci­a­tion launches The Great Global Friend­ship Run – with a goal of rais­ing more than $1 Bil­lion USD for chil­dren in need all over the world.





Lis­ten to this AV Radio episode on BlogTalk

The Great Global Run Project entails pass­ing the baton of friend­ship around the world by hav­ing Stan Cot­trell run 34 miles per day, 2 days a week in all coun­tries. He sends an open col­lab­o­ra­tive oppor­tu­nity to lead­ers who would take up the chal­lenge of orga­niz­ing this fund rais­ing exhi­bi­tion in their nations. Ethiopia has already taken up the first challenge.

The press­ing ques­tions are:

What is exactly entailed in this project?

How can a coun­try get involved?

Why are they doing this project?

How are they going to accom­plish this challenge?

And much more…

Stan Cot­trell is an award win­ning, world renowned, ultra dis­tance run­ner. He held the Guin­ness World Record for his 3,103.5 mile Trans-​USA (east to west) run in 48 days, 1 hr. 47 min., break­ing the prior record by 5 days (that’s an aver­age of 66 miles per day). Another of Stan’s renowned accom­plish­ments was run­ning from Edin­burgh, Scot­land to the Rock of Gibral­tar in 80 con­sec­u­tive days, 80 Km /​day through 12 coun­tries. In 1984, Stan ran 2,153 miles from the Great Wall of China to Guangzhou. Now at 70 years old, Stan has more than 200,000 ultra dis­tance miles through 38 coun­tries in his portfolio.

Stan believes that Sports is a pow­er­ful com­mu­ni­ca­tor and can open doors that cross cul­tural and polit­i­cal bound­aries. In 1984, he founded Friend­ship Sports Asso­ci­a­tion, Inc. (FSA), a char­ity with focus on the “Friend­ship Run” based on the prin­ci­ples that unique ath­letic events, ultra-​distance runs, health and fit­ness, con­di­tion­ing and nutri­tion, camps, sem­i­nars and cul­tural activ­i­ties can break down walls of mis­un­der­stand­ing between nations and peo­ples, fos­ter cross-​cultural under­stand­ing, com­mu­ni­ca­tion, friend­ship and coop­er­a­tion, and spread hope and help in the world, espe­cially for the down­trod­den and chil­dren. He is con­stantly tak­ing up new chal­lenges. His new adven­ture and epic odyssey of global friend­ships is sched­uled to com­mence in Ethiopia this year, 2013.

What The World Needs Now

This show was above and beyond what any­one could have expected. With no rehearsal, with only last-​minute edu­ca­tion by Wale Idris Ajubade who pro­vided us with this oppor­tu­nity for a show on African Views, yet with such excel­lent coop­er­a­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tion by every­one who spoke on this show, we have an exam­ple of Man­dated Action for What The World Needs Now: http://​abc4all​.net/​w​t​w​n​n​.​h​t​m. Thanks to ALL who made this possible.
