Good News: Cancer Survivor Runs From Florida to Maine in 68 Days

Helene Neville won’t let four bouts of cancer slow her down. The 53-year-old grandma just finished the third leg of her 10,000-mile run around the perimeter of the lower continental 48 states. Neville began the third leg of her run 68 days ago in Marathon, Florida, roughly 2,000 miles from where she finished in Portland, Maine. She said it was her most difficult journey yet because it was so hilly, but she continued even when she felt tired. Neville began the third leg of her run 68 days ago in Marathon, Florida, roughly 2,000 miles from where she finished in Portland, Maine. She said it was her most difficult journey yet because it was so hilly, but she continued even when she felt tired.  When asked why she began this journey, Neville said, “I just wanted to go out and inspire originally nurses – I’m a nurse – to be better ambassadors for healthy living to inspire health in their patients. And it’s just so much bigger. I stop and talk to school children, just the general public. I just try to get everyone to think about health and inspire the next person.” Click here for more on this woman’s wonderful journey around the country!
