50 for Billy Mission Statement

50 for Billy Mission Statement: I am running 50+ marathons in 50 states in memory of my dad, William Mason Trask, who passed away suddenly in 2006 at age 51. My dad loved to travel, but he never got to see all 50 states.  I am bringing him with me.

My goal is to complete #51 at the Mount Desert Island Marathon (where my dad grew up) age 51. This will not be a competitive journey. I will not have set goal times for each marathon, instead I want to inspire others along marathon courses to continue to run and to remember why they run. I hope to encourage others of all ages to take a proactive approach to coping with the loss of a loved one.

At the end of my journey, I would like to write a book and donate the proceeds to the Center for Grieving Children in Portland, Maine. Please follow & support me through 1,310 miles. Who will you run for?
