Good Neighbors: Amherst Woman's Cross Country Run


Leanne Stuck of Amherst is training for the journey of a lifetime.

"This challenge is going to be bigger than anything I've ever done in my life and I think it's just a great opportunity to take advantage and give back," Stuck said.

The Niagara University senior and Sweet Home grad is joining 26 other college students for a 4000 mile relay run through 48 states in 42 days. It's called the 4K for Cancer Run benefitting the Ulman Cancer Fund.

"Honestly cancer affects everyone. And I think that's why initially why I started it. And this challenge is going to be mentally and physically challenging for me. But it's nothing compared to what people go through who are diagnosed with cancer."

Leanne held fundraisers, car washes, raffles, even crocheted and sold headbands to raise nearly $5000 in donations- all of which will go directly to patient care.
