Small ArrowMan in suitAbout

Terry Hitchcock is a man who was struggling trying to be a single father after the death of his wife from breast cancer. He became frustrated by the lack of support or understanding of the plight of the single father and the lack of awareness on the impact on the family when cancer takes a life. He decided he needed to bring attention to it and decided he would do something he never did before. He would run a marathon. But he did not run one, he ran 26 consecutive marathons from Minneapolis to Atlanta. This action and his actions since have raised millions of dollars for breast cancer and related causes.
