July 2011 Issue of Runner's World

Dr. Richard Pestell, director of the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson and former national-class distance runner, was featured in the July issue of Runner’s World.

Dr. Pestell spoke with the magazine for the cover story titled “Outrunning Cancer”–which focused on the running community’s ability to raise million of dollars each year to fight cancer.

“When the story of cancer meets a runner’s story, the combination can be quite powerful,” said Dr. Pestell.
