Every day since Aug. 26, Widrig, a senior at St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, has run a 5K. And he plans to run a 5K every single day until Dec. 3. That’s 100 days of 3.1-mile runs. He’s sticking with it to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, a nonprofit founded in 2002 to both fund Alzheimer’s research and provide services and support to caregivers. His initial fund-raising goal is $2,000.
“Hopefully the snow holds off until after Dec. 3,” he said. “But at the end of the day, I can’t miss a day. So the cause keeps me focused.”
