To help and promote
the welfare of others
through feats of endurance.

- a cause for endurance mission statement


a reason to run


A Cause for Endurance was founded in 2016 by Jesse Zweig, a runner of over 15 years. While still in high school, Jesse stumbled on “Ultra Marathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner” a book by Dean Karnazes, which sparked a desire to take his running to the next level. Shortly after finding that inspiration, Jesse organized and successfully ran a 100-mile course with the goal to raise money for CHOC Children's, an accomplishment that was achieved in less than 24 hours. In 2017 He ran 200 miles without sleep for CHOC Children's. Jesse now lives in Lake Forest, CA with his wife and son.

Following in the footsteps of that first successful charity adventure, A Cause for Endurance raises money for organizations through endurance and long-distance running.
