DERRY TOWNSHIP, DAUPHIN COUNTY—Sometimes it is a pain simply driving to Philadelphia from our area. The traffic, the congestion, the 2 hour trek. Imagine not driving, actually running the 100 miles. That is what two men are doing to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network at Penn State Hershey Medical Center.
Dr. Shawn Cooper and Andrew Coy are running 100 miles in 24 hours, beginning Friday at 4 p.m., trying to raise $10,000 for CMN. The run will begin at the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. From there, the two will alternate running, taking back roads through Downingtown, Lancaster and on to Hershey, where the run will end on the campus of Penn State Hershey Medical Center.
Dr. Cooper works with children at the hospital and he sees everyday how money raised helps them cope with some tough situations. That everyday knowledge pushes him and Coy to finish this tough challenge. Each man figures, they will run over 50 miles a piece by the time the march is done.
