Utah Man Wearing Out His Sneakers for Cancer Research


In 2012 more than 1.6 million people  in the United States were diagnosed with cancer. This year, one Utahn is wearing out his tennis shoes to make that number go down.

Utah Runner Landon Cooper is running over 3,000 miles to raise awareness and funds for sarcoma cancer research. Cooper said part of what keeps him going is devoting every run to what he calls, a warrior.

Listen to Cooper talk about his run with Reporter Brianna Bodily.

You can find out more about Cooper at his website, and by talking to him on Twitter.

Brianna’s passion for journalism comes from a love of learning and a desire to know everything.  She studies Broadcast Journalism and Political Science at Utah State University and hopes one day to travel the world reporting hard news. She also works as the Aggie Radio news director and a reporter for USU TV.
