Diagnosed in 2009 with stage 4 colorectal cancer, Teri Griege has continued to participate in endurance athletics. On Oct. 31, team up with Teri and AACR Runners for Research to support cancer research at the AACR Rock 'n' Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon. http://ow.ly/QkXMV
"Research is key," Teri explains, "so if those runners go out there and they're raising money for, not only awareness, but for the research to find a cure—or if not a cure, to help us live longer and better and more productive lives—I'm all for it."
