Sacramento Man Finished 100-Mile-Run in 100 Degree Heat to Secure Health Care for Uninsured Children
Date:5/30/2008

process to Medi-Cal, Healthy Kids, and Healthy Families. These organizations handle the medical needs of California's under-privileged children.

Brett Rodarte, a long-term broker of health insurance coverage and a volunteer at Oak Ridge, explained the health care dilemma. Many families without basic health care use the emergency rooms, that can't deny care, as their only option. The cost for the simplest of procedures can cost thousands. Those costs raise health care premiums and cost tax payers.

"The Extra Mile Run, as illogical it was, the approach he took was very practical. His vision is proactive, instead of reactive," said Rodarte.

With nearly 800 people crammed on the playground to see the finish, media and camera crews scurried to get in position. The staff, faculty, and students buzzed with anticipated hope of a strong finish. In the distance, Harper, his running buddies, Rick Cole and Principal Steve Lewis, appeared. Led by an obviously pained Harper, the trio galloped towards the finish in the second day of triple digit heat. In the final steps Cole raised Harper's arm to signify victory. Harper crossed and the friends, children, parents, and teachers of Oak Ridge screamed encouragement.

On this day, everyone at Oak Ridge Elementary knew they were significant. The value of going The Extra Mile was more than a cliche. For Jason Harper, It was the 100th mile that ended his greatest run and began the children's greatest hope, health care.
