A local student is raising money for Alzheimer’s research… one step at a time.
Ethan Widrig is a senior at St. Joseph’s University and he is set on running a 5K everyday for 100 days. The trek is in honor of his grandmother who passed away from Alzheimer`s disease.
Widrig’s goal is to raise $2,000 by December 3rd. The proceeds will be donated to the Alzheimer`s Foundation of America. He started his nightly run at his school on August 26th. He says people now join him and run a few laps and cheer him on.
Widrig hopes to create his own 5K in the near future. You can follow his journey and donate on Instagram @100Daysof5K.
