Marathon runners are in it for life

Marathon runners are often in it for life — to improve their health and preserve their own lives.But members of a group called LIFE Runners are taking that a step further through a little "redemptive running" — raising awareness and funding for the needs of unborn human life. Founded in 2008 by Air Force Lt. Cols. Rich Reich and Pat Castle, LIFE Runners participate in one half-full marathon each year, raising money and awareness for pro-life issues. There currently are 128 LIFE Runners, including 17 youths, from 18 states and Canada, England, Turkey and Kenya.
