Delta Delta Alumnus to Dedicate 100th Marathon to His Father
Nov 18, 2013
Miller ran his first marathon, the Boston Marathon, in 2000 at the age of 48. He will hit a milestone in April when he returns to Boston for his 100th marathon. For those of you keeping count, that will be 2,620 miles in 14 years—less than three miles shy of 290 miles per year. And that doesn’t count training.
It will be more than just a personal achievement for him.
When Miller begins the Boston Marathon in April 2014, he will be running to raise money for the American Liver Foundation through the Run For Research charity event. In memory of his father and in commemoration of his 100th race, Miller has set his goal at raising $100,000.
Miller was at the 2013 Boston Marathon and less than a mile away from the finish line when the bombings occurred. So, the 2014 Boston Marathon will surely be an emotional one for him.
Miller is taking any and all donations as each step he takes will go towards the charity and towards “a world free of liver disease.” As a former Director of Chapter Services for the National Fraternity, he knows the impact that could be had by the support of the Alpha Tau Omega Brotherhood.
“As I continue to work within my fraternal network, I’ve already gained the support of a few chapters and fellow alumni,” said Miller. “I truly think we have the potential of a national story we can all be proud of.”
