Tony Anderson, a northern Michigan runner and 54-year-old father of three and grandfather of two, is on a mission to run a marathon in all 50 states. And he's completed 35 so far. But his reason for chasing this ambitious goal is special because it is tied to an organization that's near and dear to his heart: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Michigan. Having grown up without his father -- his dad died in a car accident at age 28 -- Tony understands both the pain of growing up without one a parent and the importance of having mentors to help guide a child following a loss. Heather talks with Tony about his dedication to running and commitment to helping children who, as he experienced, are in need of mentors. He created Marathon 4 Kids to help raise funds, through his marathon running, for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Michigan. He's raised almost $210,000 so far for this organization. Heather and Tony talk about his most memorable 26.2 races, what it means for him to be helping raise funds for Big Brithers Big Sisters, the impact his running has had on his own family, and the marathon he is eyeing for his 50th 26.2.
