Monumental Marathon Story - Parkinson's Disease & Cancer Survivor, Steve Gilbert

On June 18th, 2004, Steve Gilbert was diagnosed in the early stage of aggressive prostate cancer. Later that year he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. This video shares part of his story to health through a truly Monumental experience at the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon. The story Steve shares is one of hope and fulfillment that followed his diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. Five years ago he wandered into the Rock Steady Boxing gym and began a training program for people with Parkinson's that would change his life. As a result of this training he is in the best physical (and spiritual) condition of his life. In the process, he learned that many personal limits are self-imposed and only serve as an excuse not to push farther. Steve found the joy of discovering and appreciating the talents and blessings that God has given him, and of using those gifts as a way of honoring them. You can find the rest of Steve's story at http://www.monumentalmarathon.com/stories/

Great Wall Marathon China: You can do anything, even with cancer if you apply yourself

May 18th 2012 I finished treatment for stage 3 rectal cancer. May 18th 2013 I completed one of the hardest marathons in the world in 6 hours 40 minutes, over 5000 steps of it on the Great Wall of China. This part of my "recovery" journey started in a Cafe in Copenhagen just after the London Olympics, chatting with some friends about Lance Armstrong and my certainty that he had not taken performance enhancing drugs, I wanted to show them that anyone who had come through chemotherapy in one piece was capable of extra ordinary feats. Two of these friends Ole Wessung and Klaus Sletting Jensen, came with me to China and helped make this the most incredible experience of my life. Ole (an Iron Man, thats him in the yellow shirt at the start) was there to take care of me on the route and was practicing, firmans lifts in preparation for the race. As we set off up the hill on that first stretch of road, I felt so good I told him to leave me and run his own race, I would be fine. He came 56th and first in his age group, I was 411 over all, there were 80 behind me. Klaus was there as the official photographer and took these amazing pictures as he traveled around the course on a motorbike. Klaus gave me a little video camera which was not charged up, which I carried for 20 K, hence the picture of me threatening to throw it at him when we met on the road. It was an extremely emotional experience, I am not a weepy person normally, but when I saw Klaus on the last stair climb of the wall, I just lost it. He had my phone to take a few pictures to send home and I took the phone for the last five kilometers so I could show the girls as I entered the square and finished. What I had not expected was Ole and the Danish people waiting to cheer me in to the finish. This made it a very humbling, rather than the triumphalist experience I intended videoing and reminded me, how much I owe my wonderful friends and family for getting me through this and of course Penny Brohn Cancer Care who will help many more people live well with cancer in the future. Thanks to you all. If you want to read more about my experience of cancer http://www.rectalcancer.me/

Bob's Running the Boston Marathon to Help Fight Kids' Cancer IV

When I was a kid, my dad used to take me and my older brother and sister to a quiet, rolling, long stretch of road less travelled, free of traffic, on the outskirts of town where he would time each of us running for about a quarter mile, which was an exceptionally long distance for me at such a tender, young age.

But I liked it. I liked that indoctrination to the sport, that introduction to the concept of pounding the pavement one step at a time, running as fast as I could go for as long as I could last. I liked it enough to keep at it for years, to keep pushing my body to its furthermost limits until that one fateful day that it would no longer cooperate, until my tired, old legs would be forced to succumb to the wear and the tear.

Fortunately, I have not reached the finish line of my running career yet. That day has not arrived. In fact, having recently entered my sixth decade of life, I'm happy to say that I'm still running 5Ks, 10Ks, marathons and mountains. I'm still running for time.

Yes, ever since a father taught his children how to run like the wind, one of them has run some 15,000 miles and is still going strong. And today, I'm able to satisfy my desire to help boys and girls those who may have a long, hard road ahead of them on their way to a cure for cancer by running the Boston Marathon as a member of the MassGeneral Marathon Team Fighting Kids' Cancer...One Step at a Time.

Please help me help kids with cancer. Please go to http://www.firstgiving.com/bobcargill and give whatever you can afford, even if it is just a dollar. Ill appreciate it. But the kids Im running for will appreciate it even more. Thanks.
