MIKE RICHMAN, co-host of EQUITY Top 40 WAYV/ATLANTIC CITY's "The MIKE and DIANE Morning Show," ran SUNDAY for the SHIRLEY MAE Breast Cancer Assistance Fund. He ran the 26.2-mile marathon and gave live updates throughout the race on the radio show. Those listening pledged money, and he raised nearly $60,000 during the race.
RICHMAN had a card with 88 names of people effected from cancer pinned to his back while he ran, so people can see who he runs for and why he wants to help.
"It's for a great cause. A lot of people need it," RICHMAN said. "They are names of survivors, those who have cancer, people who died from it. Every year, the list (on the card) gets longer."
