September 25, 2010: “Miles for Miles” expands to Sweden and Pittsburgh
“Miles for Miles” was created by Stephanie Bunt in honor of Miles, the son of a good childhood friend. Miles has Progeria and lives in Sweden. The group is dedicated to raising awareness for Progeria and money for PRF through marathons and other sporting events. A “Miles for Miles” team of six friends ran the Pittsburgh Marathon on May 2, 2010, and on September 25, 2010, a Swedish team of three ran the Lidingoloppet (the world’s biggest cross country run) and raised $1,140 more for PRF!
