An NDSU student wanting to help Minot is taking the expression "marathon flood fight" literally. Minot native Ben Clark wants to raise money for the state recovery fund. The NDSU junior is running from Beach to Fargo…366 miles. He plans to cover more than 50 miles a day. Clark says no matter the moments of solitude, he will push himself toward the finish line.

Ben Clark – Running Across North Dakota: "Mentally you need something to keep your mind occupied sometimes, and sometimes, remembering the cause I'm running for is very helpful."

Clark plans to sleep only after 72 hours.
