Alison Black is one year away from completing a marathon in all 50 states. What started as a fun goal has turned into a passionate effort to honor her Uncle Ronald Kiss of Rockville, MD and Seaside, NJ.

Alison Black and Ronald Kiss

In Honor of Her Uncle

Alison Black completed running a marathon in all 50 states! What started as a fun goal has turned into a passionate effort to honor her uncle Ronald Kiss of Rockville, MD and Seaside, NJ. Mr. Kiss was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in early 2015. Alison took it upon herself to dedicate the last year of her marathon journey to raising money for the Sol Goldman Center for Pancreatic Cancer Research where her uncle is being treated.

What a great way to honor her uncle! Congratulations Alison!
