American Village West Fundraising Goal - $55 Million

The journey began April 19, 2022. Extreme athlete Tom Jones is taking the challenge of running 76 marathons in 76 consecutive days across the United States. Why? For the love of the United States of America. He begins at the original American Village in Montevallo, Alabama, and will run an average of a marathon a day, ending at the future sight of the American Village West campus in Washington County, Utah.

The American Village West campus will not only be a physical site for historical building replicas and interactive education, but also an epicenter for a national educational program, scholarships, and Freedom Summits. The overarching goal of United We Pledge is to create a rich American values-centric educational platform and curriculum accessible to youth and individuals across the county.

Tom Jones - Elite Athlete and Proud American

Extreme athlete and Marine veteran Tom Jones is passionate about the United States of America, the Constitution, and the traditional values of freedom, family, and faith. He is a world-record holder and has an impressive history of completing extreme physical challenges, including running from Huntington Beach, California, to New York City at a marathon pace for 121 consecutive days. 

A man of physical prowess and great heart, Jones engages in many challenges to raise awareness and funds for causes close to his heart. As the Village to Village run approaches, his message is, “I am willing to do this impressive physical and mental feat to bring awareness to this cause. What are you willing to do?”

ABOUT VILLAGE 2 VILLAGE

Tom’s “Village to Village” run for United We Pledge will bring awareness to and raise funds for the new American Village West, as well as promote patriotism and inspire others along the way.

For over twenty years, the American Village in Montevallo, Alabama, has given communities in the Eastern United States the opportunity to immerse themselves in early U.S. history, visit recreations of our nation’s significant historical buildings, and interact with interpretive actors representing historical figures.

Now, United We Pledge is bringing this opportunity to the West. The American Village West will greatly benefit youth, instilling in them a reverence for the sacrifices of those who have gone before and igniting the fire of patriotism to carry with them into the future. Its location in Washington County, which is considered the gateway to five national parks, will make it accessible to millions of visitors from all over the world.
On July 2, 2022, Tom will finish his 76th marathon and participate in the groundbreaking ceremony, connecting East to West, and uniting us under the cause of preserving history and shaping the future of our great nation.
