On July 30, 2012, twenty‐four‐year‐old Kelcey Harrison started running over 3,500 miles across the USA to spread awareness and raise money to help beat the cancer that took her friend Jillian Costello’s life just weeks after their college graduations. The money she raises in this trek from New York City to San Francisco will go to the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation, and its unstoppable young people’s movement – Jill’s Legacy for Lung Cancer research. She is running about 30 miles a day and her route takes her through the Greater Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky area.
Kelcey just reached Xenia Ohio today so in the next couple days, she should be arriving in the Cincinnati area this week. You can follow her progress on twitter. For more information about the Great Lung Run and how to donate, visit www.thegreatlungrun.com.
