Running The Coast For A Cure

 
In 2014, Al DeCesaris took on another challenging endeavor, this time on foot. Without a support team and with no marathon experience, Al covered on average 22.5 miles per day for three consecutive months from Lubec, Maine down the entire East Coast to Key Largo, Florida – 1,935 miles in all!

Through his Running The Coast For A Cure charity run, he created awareness about Sturge-Weber Syndrome down the coast, raised funds for ongoing medical research, and inspired others to join the fight against this devastating disorder.
