Monday, July 15, 2013 10:43 AM
Greater Des Moines residents will have two opportunities to join in and support the Above + Beyond Million Dollar Marathon team when it arrives in Des Moines. On Tuesday evening, the team of cancer survivors and supporters led by Dr. Richard Deming will arrive at the Pappajohn Sculpture Park. The group is crossing 16 states and more than 500 communities as they work to pass a baton from the Pacific to the Atlantic. A welcoming ceremony is scheduled for 7 p.m., to be followed by a free concert with local band Decoy. On Wednesday, cancer survivors, supporters and the public are invited to participate in a one-mile run-walk from the Pappajohn Education Center to the Capitol.
