Bits & Pieces: Three, three and three

A Camas, Wash., man will go to great lengths to help support the United Cerebral Palsy Foundation. Jeff Snell plans to run three marathons in three states in three months to support son Micah, who was diagnosed with agenesis of the corpus callosum, a rare brain abnormality. The family has established “Micah’s Miles,” and all donations will go toward the UCP Foundation of Oregon and Southwest Washington.

Jeff will push 3-year-old Micah in a stroller along the way during marathons in Eugene (April 28), Coeur d’Alene, Idaho (May 26) and Vancouver, Wash. (June 19, Father’s Day).
