Local woman racks up Charity Miles

Published: Monday, December 9, 2013 at 02:30 PM.

Weiner has run for different beneficiaries, but said she will be focusing on the Wounded Warriors for the remainder of the year.

"My dad is retired military, so, this one speaks to me, but different people have different passions and some might want to run for autism or cancer," she said.

Since Weiner runs so much, she has been raising $4 to $6 per week for charity for the past year. She estimates that has probably accumulated to around $350. And this was accomplished without donating time or money to events. 

"As a working parent who doesn't have a lot of time to volunteer, this is a good way to raise money for charity and exercise at the same time," she said. "I have always been a runner and worked full time. It's hard to put in hours to volunteer. This is my way of giving back and it allows me to combine two passions."
