On Friday June 29, 38-year-old Virginia Beach resident, Tommy Neeson, will attempt to run 50 Kilometers (31 miles) on a treadmill faster than anyone before him. The current record is held by Derek Lalonde (Canada) with a time of 3:39:00. Tommy is parlaying this endeavor into a charity run for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Norfolk. On February 12, 1999, Tommy lost his two-year-old daughter, Randi, to cancer. Although Randi spent many of her remaining days in a hospital room, the family was able to spend many nights together at the local Ronald McDonald House.
