Produce Manager at Market Street in San Angelo to Run 167 Miles Starting Monday
You may have seen Rich Stein if you shop for produce at Market Street in San Angelo. He is the produce manager at the popular grocery store.
About 9 years ago, Rich was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis after he woke up one morning blind in his right eye. MS is an autoimmune inflammatory disease that attacks myelinated axons in the brain and spinal cord.
An avid runner, Rich was selected to run 6 marathons over 6 days through Ohio and Pennsylvania as a part of a 19-person team that is running a relay across the US to raise money in the fight against MS. The "MS Run the US" relay started in April and will be completed next month.
Rich is running the 17th segment of the relay starting on Monday and will finish up his leg of the route on Saturday, August 7th. His 167-mile trek will start in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio and end in Brookville, Pennsylvania.
Rich is selling "MS Run the US" relay hats and t-shirts at Market Street. Stop by the produce section and buy a hat and/or shirt for a good cause. And make sure you say "hi" to Rich while you are there as well.
