Glen Cover Eva Casale is going the distance for Leukemia and Lymphoma this Sunday at the Bethpage Ocean to Sound Relay.
The ultrarunner will tackle a "double run," traversing 100 miles in total. She will begin her race on Saturday evening and complete a full 50 miles, before starting over again with the rest of the runners on Sunday morning at 8am.
Casale has raised more than $50,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
She will be joining some other remarkable participants including:
-Peter Hawkins, who runs all 50 miles individually in his wheelchair
-Wesley Macker, 21-year old Stony Brook University track star to run 50 miles individually
-Super Sixties, an all women’s super seniors team (60+ years of age)
