8 Days Until a 52.5 Mile Run Shows Overcoming Obstacles is Possible

Would you ever do something crazy to raise money for charity? Like run a marathon? How about running two marathons straight? That’s what Marlins President David Samson is doing next Friday to raise money for 10 featured charities and to honor the workers who helped build Marlins Park.

With eight days remaining, today’s featured cause is Miami Children’s Hospital. MCH is a network of comprehensive care centers with talented people dedicated to exceeding the expectations of our children and families by giving them control and providing world-class service in a highly automated environment.

David will run miles 30-35 of the 52.5 mile run in honor of this charity and will be joined for this stretch by M. Narendra Kini, MD, President and CEO of Miami Children’s Hospital.

Running 52.5 miles is not impossible, but something most aren’t willing to do. David is running to show that with commitment, challenges can be overcome. Click here to donate to today’s featured cause, or to any of the causes listed, to show you support David in his “crazy” venture!
