Run Beyond Borders was conceived upon entering our first Marathon as a way to turn a mental and physical challenge into a charitable cause. Our first RRB project was to raise for the FairPlay For All Foundation located in Payatas, Manila’s largest dump site. We ran the Laguna International Marathon was held in Phuket, Thailand on June 9th 2013 and raised PHP250K for the FFA and Payatas FC. Our current Run Beyond Borders project seeks to help raise funds for Valley Fire relief in Middletown California. We will run the Newport Marathon on October 11th 2015 in Newport Rhode Island. Our goal is to raise $10,000.00 to help rebuild a community devastated by raging fires in Middletown, CA.
To provide children and people living in poverty, disrepair or affected by natural disaster, the opportunity to rebuild, grow and explore their communities beyond their current circumstances.
The Run Beyond Borders was created by Lexton Moy and Cooper Browning as their commitment to humanitarianism and a life of health and fitness. Lexton and Cooper made their 1st marathon a significant charitable cause for the Fairplay for All Foundation. The Laguna International Marathon marked the first of many different competitions that will kickstart their tradition of assisting various organizations around the world through physically challenging events. Their current project focuses on relief fundraising to aid the rebuilding of Middletown California, a loving town that was devastated by raging Valley Fires. They will run the Newport Marathon to bring awareness and fundraise to various families and businesses in need of help.
Run Beyond Borders incorporates Lexton and Cooper’s passions to raise awareness and to diversify their contributions through different competitions throughout the globe.
