This relay takes 46 days and over 20,000 people take part in the running of the torch every Special Olympics. This torch will soon arrive in Los Angeles after beginning over 5000 miles away in Athens, Greece. Michael is currently fundraising and training to participate in the Marine Corps Marathon and has already raised $11,000. This money will all go back to The Ability Experience.
