Devastated by the loss of her father in 2010 to pancreatic cancer, Julie Weiss channeled her mourning into an audacious quest – run 52 marathons in 52 weeks to raise money and awareness for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. The Run Walk Ride Fundraising Council honored Weiss’ achievement by presenting her with the Cash, Sweat & Tears Award at the council's annual conference in Atlanta. This video was part of the Award presentation.
Each year, the Run Walk Ride Fundraising Council invites nonprofit organizations with athletic event fundraising programs in the U.S. and Canada to nominate one inspiring participant for the Cash, Sweat & Tears Award. Every nominee is recognized with a certificate of merit. This year, Julie Weiss received a trophy, a commemorative running shirt documenting her achievement created by GoodThreads, a package of apparel and athletic footwear from New Balance, and a $1,000 contribution to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network underwritten by Blackbaud.
