Waco, TX-based Spenco Medical reported on June 4 that ultra-distance runner Roy Weigand completed a 131-mile trek in Burbank, CA, in about 27 hours to raise funds to help support families of children with cancer.
Weigand, who runs in honor of Christopher Wilke, his son’s friend who died from cancer, raised more than $12,000 for the Michael Hoefflin Foundation for Children’s Cancer in Santa Clarita, CA. This is the third year Spenco has supported “Roy’s Run for Christopher” by providing him with supportive insoles, recovery shoes, and other products.
