Celebrated marathon runner and national Ambassador of the Hirshberg Foundation, Julie Weiss, is running 52 Races for 52 Faces in an exciting year-long challenge to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer! Every race included in the 52 Races for 52 Faces challenge will be dedicated to a patient who has courageously fought this disease. Throughout this extraordinary journey, Julie will share enduring stories of hope, empowerment, loss and resilience from patients and families fighting for their lives and the lives of their loved ones. The fight against pancreatic cancer isn’t just about statistics - there is a name and a face behind every survivor and that’s a story worth telling.
In 2012 through 2013, Julie, the "Marathon Goddess", ran 52 marathons in 52 weeks following the loss of her father, Maurice Weiss, after his battle with pancreatic cancer. This was just the first step to becoming a passionate advocate in the fight against pancreatic cancer and a voice for the community!
Julie's 52 Races for 52 Faces challenge will also go hand-in-hand with her book tour celebrating the release of 52 Weeks, 52 Marathons: The Miles and Trials of a Marathon Goddess, the story of how she turned her passion into a purpose.
