Ohio Native Runs 100 Miles In 1 Day
For Childhood Cancer Awareness
An Ohio native took the fight against childhood cancer to the streets by running 100 miles in 1 day to raise awareness for the cause.
2005 Crestview graduate John Halter completed the 2nd Annual Hope For Hattie Ultra Marathon in Knoxville, Tennessee last weekend where he ran for 22 consecutive hours with the support of his community, family members, and thousands of others following his inspiring journey on social media.
Halter shares a personal connection to the cause with his daughter, Hattie, being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia when she was only nine months old. She has now been in remission for over two years but still faces daily challenges that motivate John to help Hattie and others receive essential support while navigating a difficult situation.
In this exclusive interview, hear from Halter about his personal experience with childhood cancer, the spiritual journey that carried him through his 100-mile run and the charities he supports that were there for his family when they needed them most.
Halter encourages anyone who is able to donate platelets or to the following organizations:
