Luis Reséndiz, a bilingual teacher at Ridgetop Elementary School, is collecting donations for the next school year. He did the run last year and raised more than $ 11,000 for his students.

His goal, which starts at 7 a.m. on Friday, is to run 50 miles in less than eight hours.

He’s doing a 1 mile loop near the school in Central Austin.
