On March 7, Chad Leathers (BFA ’07) completed the 2010 Antarctica Marathon, which raised more than $250,000 for neurofibromatosis research, in 6 hours and 20 minutes. His team of 11 slogged through rains, 45-mph winds and peanut butter-like frozen mud in the 30-degree, summertime weather. Leathers’ brother, Drew, has a rare form of NF that has made him a paraplegic. Leathers compares the marathon, which he calls “26 miles of hell,” to Drew’s battle with NF. Chad created the Tumornators fundraising team with brother Ben (BS ’08) to promote awareness about NF research.
