Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- If you live or drive on the outskirts of NDSU campus -- get ready to see this guy again and again and again this week.

This is NDSU student and Minot native Ben Clark. By the time this week is over, he will run the 3-mile loop around campus 135 times. That's a total of 400 miles. He started the repetitive trek today at 3.

The Minot native previously ran 366 miles across North Dakota in less than a week to raise money for the flood recovery.

He hopes to raise 10-thousand dollars for the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association.

Clark says, "it'll go to AARDA and they'll use it to raise awareness and fund research and educate doctors making early diagnosis people with autoimmune diseases go to an average 4 to 5 doctors before they get properly diagnosed."

Ben's mother has multiple sclerosis, his father has a nerve disorder. You can track his progress this week or donate, by going to the website "ben clark runs dot com."
