WABI Interviews Student About Coast-to-Coast Run for Cancer

WABI (Channel 5) spoke with University of Maine sophomore Matt Dexter about his participation in 4K for Cancer — a 4,000-mile team run from San Francisco, Calif. to Baltimore, Md. that aims to raise awareness of cancer and raise money for cancer research. For 42 days during the summer, Dexter and 33 other college students will run about 10 miles a day. During rest days, the students plan to visit hospitals and give college scholarships to young adults fighting cancer. Dexter, whose mother died from cancer when he was 13, said he wants to affect at least one person’s life in a positive way.
