The Race to end Childhood Cancer

100 Keys to the Cure

The Childhood Cancer Project is honored to have Caryn Lubetsky running on their team once again. On March 12th, NIKE honored her for her successful world record, “most triathalons hauling another person in a month.” Caryn set the Guinness World Record (completing 400 miles of triathlons

while pushing/pulling her partner Kerry Gruson, a paraplegic endurance athlete in four race days over the course of just eight days throughout the State of Florida).


A mother of three, a world-class athlete, a lawyer, as well as a law professor, Caryn possesses many talents. Somehow, she makes time for her relentless passion for helping others. Fortunately for the Childhood Cancer Project, Caryn shares the same determination to help put an end to those dreaded words that parents of almost 16,000 children hear every year.... “YOUR CHILD HAS CANCER.”


IF THE GUINNESS WORLD RECORD WAS NOT ENOUGH, CARYN ALSO:


• Was selected to be 1 of 100 RUNNERS GLOBALLY to compete in Badwater, THE MOST DIFFICULT FOOTRACE WORLDWIDE (only 27 women were chosen)

• Was selected to be 1 of 6 runners to run with a quadriplegic for the New York City Marathon

• Is a four-time Ironman (In two of these 140.6 mile triathalons, she pushed/pulled Kerry Gruson, her

quadriplegic race partner throughout)

• Has competed in over thirty marathons, four Ultramarathons, two 50K Ultramarathons, two 12-hour and

two 6-hour Ultramarathons, FINISHING IN THE OVERALL PODIUM IN EACH AND EVERY RACE


Last Year, Caryn competed in the “Keys 100 Ultramarathon” in honor of The Childhood Cancer Project, raising over $100,000. After coming across the finish line among one of the top runners, having run the last 30 or so miles with a fractured foot, Caryn’s words were, “we can do so much more if I run for us nationally.”
