If you can run a marathon, think about those who cannot…
Superior Van and Mobility’s own, Paul Erway is just one of three individuals who accepted the challenge and is participating in completing 50 marathons, in 50 states, in 50 weeks. Alongside Paul, Aaron Roux and Grant Berthiaume have also accepted the challenge; all three are working in tandem to raise awareness, donations and support for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.
The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research. In addition, the foundation provides outlets for therapy and works to improve the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.
The trio’s next marathon of the series will be #16 Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon which will be held April 27,2013, Main Street, Louisville, KY.
While you may not be able to attend every event to cheer the team on, you can still help make a difference by making a donation to your local chapter of the Christopher & Dana Reeve foundation or by visiting www.50abilitymarathons.com for a direct link. Those who donate can feel good that their donation goes a long way to help people like Grant, Aaron, and Paul. Individuals who once walked and ran, but now must rely on the use of a wheelchair due to an unforeseen circumstance and/or event.
Remember, 50 marathons… 50 states… 50 weeks!
