Live from Roy’s 100 mi Run for Christopher in Santa Clarita, CA, Roy Wiegand joins us for news on his progress, the support of the local community for his efforts to raise funds for the Michael Hoefflin Foundation.  We are joined by BethAnn Telford, veteran of the World Marathon Challenge, to support Roy and to hear about her accomplishments and challenges, with conversation between runners, with potential planning for events in the next year.

Everett Smith of Redlands, CA then joins us to report on his Appalachian journey with Tony Stoddard, legendary childhood cancer advocate and endurance athlete.  Everett has initiated several endurance events benefiting pediatric cancer awareness and research, with his Appalachian trek benefiting Sophia’s Fund at sophiasfund.org.  Last but not least, we finish our heroes’ round table with Brian Jones, founder of the Run for the White House event, which this year began January first and continues through September 17, the date of CureFest.  He talks about the recent merger with MaxCure Foundation for a dynamic new start, and  we discuss navigating the current political climate for our common cause of raising awareness for the urgent need for pediatric cancer research.
