55 miles for cancer research

Center Point (KWWL) - An eastern Iowan is running for research.

Friday morning Dave Martin took off from Center Point. He's running 55 miles, to Cedar Falls.

It's the 25th anniversary of Relay For Life, and 30 years since his father died of cancer, that adds up to 55.

"The biggest thing I'm looking to do here is make people aware of the fact that cancer affects everyone and therefore it's everyone's responsibility. Everyone should feel like they have a respsonsibilty to fight this thing," says Martin.

We will feature Dave Martin in two weeks during our Someone You Should Know segment.
