Kevin Lofton talked with a team from CHI’s National Oncology Service Line before they ran a leg of the Million Dollar Marathon.

Two teams of runners from CHI’s Denver office participated in the “Million Dollar Marathon: Coast to Coast for Cancer,” which crossed the country to raise money for cancer research and advocacy. One of the groups was joined by Richard Deming, MD, medical director of Mercy Cancer Center, Des Moines, IA, a founder of Above+Beyond, the nonprofit organization behind the Million Dollar Marathon. 

More CHI employees participated in the marathon as it passed through Iowa. The run concluded on August 2 in Rehoboth Beach, DE.  More information is available at the Coast to Coast for Cancer website.
