Join me in making a difference


1994: At the age of 42, I made the decision to stop crashing the boards at the hockey rink and took up running for exercise so I could compete in my first Road America ACS event—a 4-mile run. The next fall, I registered for the 8-mile event which was the start of my 17-year running career. 

1998–2008: I realized I could run a marathon distance and, better yet, I could commit to raising money for the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society's "Team in Training" program. I ran my first of three Leukemia marathons in Anchorage, Alaska in 1999. In 2002, I signed up both my wife, Lynn, and I for a second marathon distance in Dublin, Ireland. In 2008, a third fundraising event and a marathon in Maui, Hawaii. 

2004: I was asked if I would be interested in working as co-chair for the Hit The Road Run/Walk, benefitting the American Cancer Society. I accepted the offer and have enjoyed every year since. 

2021–present: I took my wife's advice on Saturday, July 1st and visited the Aurora walk-in clinic. Blood tests identified a potential problem with my liver. Ten days later I was at the Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinic to discuss with my oncologist the treatment for my stage 2B pancreatic cancer. 

Dr. Gustafson and his staff scheduled a 6-month chemo program to shrink the tumor before scheduling a surgery at St. Luke's on March 8, 2022. After recovery from surgery, I completed an additional 30 sessions of radiation and chemotherapy. 

On August 18, 2022, I sat down with Dr. Gustafson to discuss my final CT scan and found out that I was "cancer free."

A few months later, on November 18, 2022, a CT scan showed that the cancer had returned to my pancreas and had also spread to my liver and lungs. Three months of another chemo protocol only slowed the progression. I've now started a fourth chemo regimen, which we hope will have a more positive impact. 

My "Why": Taking part in this event gives me the chance to make a difference and inspire hope through raising funds for groundbreaking research and services, for people, like myself, who are currently battling cancer.
