52 Marathons in 52 Weeks – Mission Accomplished – Julie Weiss Raises Awareness and Funds for Pancreatic Cancer Research
Julie Weiss ran 52 marathons in 52 weeks in order to raise awareness and funds to fight pancreatic cancer with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
The LA Marathon was the final marathon in her quest. She completed each one with a smile on her face but this LA marathon was special, it was her 52nd, the final race on this journey.
I was lucky enough to run the entire marathon with her and it was amazing. She enjoyed the sites on the course, talked to so many people, danced, sang, was interviewed by media and inspired the crowd. She was the spirit of this marathon.
The video is my documentary of this special day. It was a fantastic experience.
At this time Julie has raised over $170,000 but her goal is to raise 1 million dollars. She told me she’ll take a short break but will continue running marathons and raising funds to find a cure. You can help her find a cure for Pancreatic Cancer by making a donation to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network on her web site MarathonGoddess.com
