On October 2, 2016 Russell (“Rusty”) Allwein will begin a 210 mile run from Morgantown, WV to College Park, MD over 7 days to raise funds for the Zaching Against Cancer Foundation. Rusty, an alum of West Virginia University, based the idea off of charity relay run that his fraternity organized while he was in school. He chose the University of Maryland as the endpoint since that was Zachary Lederer’s school. Although Rusty did not personally know Zachary, he was inspired by Zach’s fight against cancer and wants to help others in Zach’s name. Rusty will run solo but have a support vehicle and various crew to provide assistance.
