Claire, over at Running on Hope, let me know about The Hope Runs 777 Challenge!
Hope Runs is a non-profit non-governmental organization (NGO) working in Kenya and Tanzania, that uses athletics, education, and social entrepreneurship to empower AIDS orphans.
The 777 Challenge, taking place in 2010, is an Guiness World Record-breaking endeavor led by Hope Runs to complete 7 marathons on 7 continents in only 7 weeks.
