Could you run for 24 hours straight?

The executive director of the Maryland Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is, in an effort to raise $100,000 to help fund cancer therapies and treatments.

Jonathan Wilson hit the treadmill at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning at Charm City Run in Timonium and will keep running until 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Wilson has been training by running two to three hours on the treadmill every evening.

He’s challenged others to join teams to try to beat him, and so far Brown Advisory, Charm City Run, and LLS staff, volunteers and cancer survivors have already formed teams.
