Marine veteran Chris Cantrell is running with a purpose, and, hopefully, one day, a final destination.
Cantrell is participating in the 48-Hour Dreadmill Challenge by running on a treadmill at the We Run store in Northeast Cedar Rapids.
The goal is to run at least 100 miles within the 48-hour period to raise funds for Alzheimer’s disease research and public awareness. Cantrell is a part of a veterans group, Team Red, White, and Blue, and he started his 100-mile quest at noon on Tuesday.
