Marathons!Weeks!

From May 5, 1996 thru April 27, 1997, Karl Gruber, of Hide-Away-Hills, Ohio successfully ran one marathon a week for 52 consecutive weeks. Karl's year of marathons was named the "Super Run for the Cure" with the idea being that his marathons and the subsequent publicity would serve as a vehicle to promote public awareness of the need to find a cure for the deadly disease of leukemia, and to try to raise $1 million for leukemia research. To date, Karl is still raising money toward successfully reaching his $1 million goal.

Karl Gruber's "Super Run for the Cure" is testimony to the fact that an ordinary man can accomplish extraodinary things! If Karl, an ordinary, mid-pack runner can run 52 marathons in 52 weeks, you can accomplish something extraordinary too by contributing to the "Super Run for the Cure" fund for leukemia research by mailing your check today to:

"Super Run for the Cure!"
2093 Lynbridge Drive

Karl became only the 9th man to ever successfully accomplish running at least 52 marathons for 52 consecutive weeks! "Thank-you to everyone who gave their support, help and encouragement to me during my year long adventure! Please sign my guest book or stay in touch with me at: kwgruber@yahoo.com".

Watch for the story & picture about Karl in the July '97 issue of "Runner's World" magazine, and also look for his book about his "Super Run" coming in the months ahead!
