“Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible”

My name is Michael Meints, a native of Germany and 15-year resident of the US. In 2012, I lost my father Bernhard Meints after his 8-year fight with Chordoma, a rare type of cancer which affects the bones of the skull and spine and in 2015, I lost my friend Manny Torres to Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma. These events caused me depression, leading to weight gain and an unhealthy life. After seeing Jay Baker, a long-lost friend, running ‘100k for Shay’ and reflecting on my accomplishments and beautiful family, I was inspired to do the same in my father’s and Manny’s honor. Since then, I started to train; changed my eating habits; ran a half-marathon in February 2016, during the first anniversary of Manny’s death; and ran my first 24-hour run where I got to meet the Road Warriors. That’s when it became clear that I wanted to run my first 100-miler under the Road Warrior charity.

So join me and the Road Warriors, November 12, 2016 for ‘The HOPE Run’ in honor of Bernhard Meints and Manny Torres.
