Amongst the IA network there are more than a few dedicated runners, including our Imerman Active team (participating in the Chicago Marathon on Sunday!), but it may be safe to say that no one runs further for Imerman Angels than Adrian Belitu.

Founder of Benefits of Giving and The Endurance Club, Adrian is an ultra-distance runner who participates in races of over 100 miles all over the world.  His most recent event was the Spartathalon: an invitation-only, 135 mile run from Athens to Sparta that took 36 hours to complete.  Having lost both of his parents to cancer, Adrian decided to run in support of IA.

Dedicated to The Endurance Club motto “raise more than just a sweat”, Adrian has expanded his passion of running into a fundraising opportunity that had originally generated $5K for IA.  He will not stop there.  By creating Benefits of Giving, he plans to work alongside our goals of growth over the next few years by attempting to raise a million dollars to aid in our mission of connecting cancer fighters and survivors for 1-on-1 support.

Ultra-distance running, according to Adrian, is an individual challenge within a community event.  Runners speak to one another as they journey over mountains and push through hours of intense physical exertion while helping each other make it to the finish.  Similar to this, Adrian believes that athletes can benefit from collaborating towards a fundraising effort and making a big difference together.  His million dollar goal, with support of athletes around the country, will be possible.

Through Benefits of Giving, an athlete can turn any competition into an opportunity to improve the lives of people fighting cancer.  Not limited to distance runners, athletes across disciplines are able to identify an event to dedicate themselves to and, from there, a customized fundraising page can be created!  The site allows each participant to track the donations that they have received: friends and family can click “Donate to Me” and quickly submit money to the mission of their choice.

Dedicated competitors can take their game to the next level by enrolling in The Endurance Club, which will allow them to, through fundraising, collect “points” on the site that can then be applied towards entry fees for future events.  They say that good deeds are paid forward and The Endurance Club is proof of this!
