Peter Tasker seems like a normal guy. He’s the father of 2 and is the athletic director at John Burroughs High School.

However, instead of spending part of his summer vacation at a resort, he’s going to run. He’s going to run across the country of Nicaragua, about 250 miles.

He’s going run almost a half marathon six days a week for about 3 weeks.

Tasker is doing this for a special charity that will help educate kids in Nicaragua.
