Shu’s Idaho Running Company is pleased to announce the winner of our Shu’s Inspirational Award. Dottie Bledsoe of Boise, ID is that recipient. This will be presented on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 12:00 pm.
Dottie is the founder and director of Fiftytwo.four (formerly Run for Heaven’s Gate). She has recruited and encouraged over a hundred runners each year to complete 4 half marathons in 4 weeks to raise money for HIV/AIDS orphans in India. Over the past 11 years, Dottie, along with the amazing Fiftytwo.four team, has raised over $950,000! Every dollar raised is sent to India to care for the many needs of the beautiful kids they run for.
Each year there are approx 100 runners and walkers that join Fiftytwo.four and run four local half marathons during the month of October. The organization is a 501c3, non-profit and 100% of the funds are sent to India. Fiftytwo.four operates solely on volunteers and donations. Check out their website if you are interested in running for a purpose this year- fiftytwofour.org.
