Poland natives Marek Jedrachowicz and disabled marathon athlete Janusz Radgowski are on a journey of more than 3,000 miles from Seattle, Washington, to Lewes, Delaware. The trip is raising money for Jedrachowicz’s 2 and a half-year-old daughter Zuzia, who requires daily therapy for her complex genetic brain condition. He is traveling with the supermarathoner, driving a bus packed with supplies and helping promote his daughter’s cause. Jedrachowicz reported good donations so far.

“Almost every day, someone stops us on the road,” he said.

This is Radgowski’s third supermarathon. Each event has raised funds for someone in need, a tradition started when the runner’s life was saved by a kidney donation. Radgowski said the start of his longest supermarathon was going well, and Montana was providing a great environment.

“We enjoy the beauty of Montana, all the way we’ve been through mountains and high hills,” Jedrachowicz translated for him. The pair also appreciated Montanans, describing the state’s residents as kind and helpful.
