LENEXA, Kan. (AP) A 44-year-old Lenexa police officer has been running a marathon each weekend for nearly a year to raise money for two charities.
Bob Schluben finished his 52nd marathon in 47 weeks on Sunday when he completed the Gobbler Grind marathon in Overland Park . He's raised almost $30,000 for the Sunflower House in Shawnee and the Surviving Spouse and Family Endowment Fund, also known as SAFE. Sunflower House is a child abuse prevention center, and SAFE raises money to support families of police officers, firefighters and paramedics who die on duty.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/17LZmLj ) Schluben initially promised to run a marathon each weekend, but he did more than one a few weekends, so even though he has done 52, he plans to do five more this year.
