Man runs from Maryland to Fulton to raise cancer awareness

A man has set out on the journey of a lifetime, running more than 350 miles from Maryland to his childhood hometown of Fulton in the name of fighting cancer.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - A man has set out on the journey of a lifetime, running more than 350 miles from Maryland to his childhood hometown of Fulton in the name of fighting cancer.

Ben Hall hasn’t seen his wife and kids in two weeks, but it is for a good cause.

Hall is running up the I-81 corridor in memory of his aunt and uncle who both passed away from cancer.

“One out of two men in the United States and one in three women in the United States will get cancer and there are so many things we can do to reduce our risk of getting cancer,” Hall said.

Running from place to place has been a challenge for Hall, both physically and mentally

“I have to stay positive. I have to believe I’m going to make it to my destination,” Hall said. “Nothing is impossible. If you break down the word, it's I'm Possible.”

“You can set anything you set your mind to. We say that to kids when they're young, but we really don’t say it to each other in terms of adults,” said Hall.

Hall is inviting people in Fulton to help him finish the final stretch of his run.

You can meet him at the K-Mart in Fulton at 1 p.m. on Saturday. All the money Hall raises will benefit the American Cancer Society.

You can read more about Hall on his blog and also find information about donating for his cause.
