A personal challenge with a global impact
After falling from a three-story building and breaking his back, Tony Cohen, 49 of East Village, was told he would never walk again. To challenge himself, Cohen decided to break the Guinness World Record of the most marathons done in one day-26.2-on a treadmill. His personal goal intrigued others, leading him to turn his challenge into an event. He is teaming up with Team in Training of The Leukemia and Lymphoma society to raise money for an issue that rings close to his heart.
