    Premiere Van Lines President and adventure enthusiast Walt Peniuk will be taking on one of his greatest challenges yet by trekking from Mississauga, Canada, to National Harbor for this year's IAM Annual Meeting. Walt will run and bike the entire distance in order to raise fund for IAM's new charity, IAM Here 2 Help. Hear what Walt has to say about his efforts:

    "I love to run, bike and seek adventure. With this in mind I thought why not leverage this to raise funds for IAM Here2Help. I believe IAM Here 2 Help is a great cause. In today's world of the "changing climate" there are many organizations positioned to help prevent "climate change" disasters. Let's hope they are successful but there needs to be an organization to deal with the effects of climate change and that's where IAM Here2 Help vital role is.

    My goal is to run a half-marathon and bike 80 kilometers a day from Toronto to Washington. Please join me in this quest by one of the following:(1) set up your own goals of walking, biking or running a certain number of miles/kilometers a week from now until the IAM convention in October and try to raise funds for your participation. (2)support my efforts through a donation on Crowdrise (3) be an official sponsor of Walt's Bike/Run* and be recognized at IAM's Annual Meeting and Expo."

    *For information on sponsorship please contact Margaret Kerr at Margaret.Kerr@IAMovers.org

    Apart from fundraising for IAM Here 2 Help, Walt is also hoping that his endeavors will inspire people to create and execute their own exercise goals. Whether it is going for a walk a day or running a certain number of miles/kilometers leading up to the Annual Meeting, he encourages all members to participate. You can get involved and make your pledge by visiting Walt's Bike/Run Facebook page or by replying directly to this post.

    Good luck Walt on your training and this momentous challenge you are taking on.
