Ultramarathons require endurance, strength, and determination in order to succeed. IRun4Ultra believes that the journey one takes through an ultramarathon can symbolize the challenges a child and his or her family may face on a day-to-day basis when he or she has a learning or neurodevelopmental disorder. We also believe that because of the extreme nature of these races there is no better way to capture the world’s attention and focus the spotlight on our awareness campaigns by showing our aesthetically-pleasing Ultra Marathons Documentaries.
