24 Marathons Back-to-Back for Cancer

In today's edition of "The Good Stuff," can you imagine running 24 marathons, back-to-back, in 24 days?

This is what 4 dedicated runners in 4 different stated set out to do in order to benefit children's cancer research. The number 24 is significant because that is the number beds in the cancer wing of the Milwaukee Children's Hospital, in runner Brian Groonder's home state.

Today is Day 15. The runners are actually allowed to run and stop, but the rule is that they must do 26.2 miles every day. This is to show the difficulty families deal with when battling cancer.

If you would like to support their efforts, check out the Snowdrop Foundation at SnowdropFoundation.org.

    What a great initiative! Maybe you could organise something like that in the Southampton where you live? Then everybody can go to the Southampton Bathing club which your wife is a member of (i heard they turned you down)to cool off right? Make sure you warn everybody that the Southampton bathing club doesn't admit blacks though!
