Alfredo Pedro Perro World’s Longest Turkey Trot for ALS

November 24

Five years ago, ultramarathoner Alfredo Perro complained to his friend Scott Kummer that he wanted to run one last 100 mile race before the end of the year. Scott and Alfredo decided to simply run from the Chicago Bean to the city of Milwaukee for a roughly 100 mile turkey trot on black Friday. The called it the “World’s Longest Turkey Trot.” Shortly thereafter, Alfredo was diagnosed with ALS. Alfredo fought a battle with the disease but lost his life to it in November 2015.

Every year a few runners have carried on this tradition in his honor by running between Chicago and Milwaukee on Black Friday. This year they hope to use the run to raise money and awareness for ALS.

Make your donation to support Scott and his friends Racine, Tim, Doug, Matt, Andrew, Jimmy, Christine, Susan, Brian, Rey and Elin as they run 100 miles from Chicago to Milwaukee on Black Friday!
