16 X 16 AT A GLANCE
Main purpose : Inspire others.
The depth of inspiring others can not be measured.
Here at 16 X 16, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding in 2019, we have been determined to make an impact. Facing many life challenges, being knocked to the ground, and fighting everyday, Lee Perreira's daily growth, love, and determination to make the world a better a place is how 16 x16 was born. Using his platform as an endurance athlete to raise money for carefully selected charities. Running 16 marathons in 16 days. In year 1 Lee Perreira ran from Phoenix AZ, to Burbank CA. In year 2 Lee Perreira ran 16 marathons in 16 days in 16 different Arizona cities and has raised almost $25,000 for charity! ..... And he's doing it again.. 2021 watch out! This year to up the ante Lee Perreira is running his 16 marathons in a row in the middle of the scorching Arizona Summer with an average August temperature of 104 degrees.
Through all of our endeavors we hope to display the conviction behind our beliefs.
