On November 8th, the Camp Fire in northern California grew rapidly and burned through 10,000 acres in under 90 minutes. The rate at which the fire spread was unprecedented which is tragically why the death toll is the highest in history. It destroyed more structures than the previously worst 6 wildfires combined. That's more than 17,000 structures with over 12,000 of those being people’s homes. Those who survived the evacuation in the town of Paradise and beyond lost everything and are now starting the unimaginable process of rebuilding. But in the darkness of the tragedy has risen a call to action from the nearby communities and around the world. Countless donations have been made for the victims, and the volunteer efforts to sort through these donations has been unbelievable. For people who cannot help in person, monetary funds have been established, including one called the Donner Party 50k which was set up by my guest today, Jon Levitt, along with friends. When the 50k he trained for was cancelled due to the poor air quality in San Francisco, a group gathered at Donner Lake, near Lake Tahoe, to use their training and running community to raise money for the victims of the Camp Fire. So without further adieu, here is Jon with how that all came together
