1 man, 66 days, 7200 KM. Out Run Rare is Dave Proctor’s cross country Canada run for Rare Disease. His record-breaking 108 KM daily runs will raise awareness and research dollars for all the children, like his son Sam, who are living with a Rare Disease. It is Dave’s mission to raise much-needed research dollars for micro-grants to help families with a Rare Disease. On June 27, 2018, Dave will embark from Victoria, BC and not stop until he dips his foot in the Atlantic Ocean off the Harbour in St. John’s Newfoundland. He will have run on average 108 KM a day for 66 days in a row.To learn more about Dave Proctor’s OUTRUN RARE journey visit: https://outrunrare.com

What is Rare Disease?

A rare disease is defined as a condition affecting fewer than 1 in 2000 people. There are more than 7000 diagnosed rare diseases and many more undiagnosed diseases. About 1 in 12 people (nearly three million Canadians) have a rare disease. Most known rare disorders are severe and chronic, with many being degenerative and life threatening. Rare diseases are poorly characterized so many conditions remain unnamed. People who do not have a specific diagnosis can be denied access to necessary medical support services.
