Cousins raise over $9,000 at marathon
May 9th, 2003
Native Milwaukeeans Jennifer Loeb, 36, and Marsha Loeb, 25, ran the Vancouver Marathon May 4, raising over $9,000 for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
The cousins, now residents of New York City, participated in the Societys Team in Training, a national effort that provides coaching, training and support in exchange for participants raising money. Seventy-five percent of the collected sum will go toward cures for leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other blood-related cancers.
Both women originally planned to run Vancouvers mini-marathon but upgraded to the full race during training.
