A Hero of Dyslexia Takes on the World
Diagnosed with dyslexia when he was five years old, Jared learned that, for him, academic success would be a matter of hard work and endurance...
Today, Jared has completed eight marathons, has graduate degrees from Seattle Pacific University and University of Southern California, and is now training to compete in the World Marathon Challenge in January 2018, where he will run seven marathons on seven continents in seven days.
Jared has partnered with TeamQuest to raise $50,000 for the International Dyslexia Association so that teachers, parents, and students can receive the resources and support that he needed to be successful.
“Going for this challenge, I really wanted to find something bigger than myself to be a part of. When I came across the International Dyslexia Association and TeamQuest and saw that they do endurance challenges to support literacy, I thought that was really, really cool, and it definitely hit a string with me."
Please show your support for Jared as he takes on the World Marathon Challenge with TeamQuest by his side... until everyone can read!
