Tom does everything with gusto! Runners could easily grab a cup of ice from his unwavering, strong arm!
There were many inspiring stories of runners who have been affected by pancreatic cancer and have turned their anguish into a determination to advance funding for pancreatic cancer. One of the runners, Julie Weiss, is a self-declared Marathon Goddess, who lost her father to pancreatic cancer last year. She is slated to run 52 marathons in 2012, and Grandma's Marathon was her 10th one this year. She has already raised over $100,000 for pancreatic cancer research. Amazing!!!

Another such story is Sara Peterson, whose father is on the board of directors for Grandma's Marathon and is now battling pancreatic cancer. See this link for an inspiring article about their journey. http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/event/article/id/234254/publisher_ID/36/
Pancreatic Cancer: Know it. Fight it. End it.
