Dribbling a basketball ... for 26 miles

My idol in no other words. I am currently a senior at Memorial Highschool. I am very familiar to Dribbletheworld.com and have done several events such as the "100 Mile Challenge" and "Marathon Descalzo" to raise money and awareness for a non-profit organization Malaria-nomore. I am also planning on dribbling the New York Marathon next year for the same organizations and nothing else would give me more pleasure than having opportunity to help so many in need and finishing in Guinness World Record Time. I look forward to great things!
