Jules Embry-Pelrine had run for 24 hours and over 100 miles at 7 pm on Friday!

He began his course at 150 Old South Road on Thursday evening and covered most of Nantucket Island twice over the next 24 hours. Jules is quick to point out the staggering number of miles covered in the same period by world record holders. We’re quick to point out that he is our record holder and is an awe-inspiring athlete and humanitarian.

Jules ran in support of the Marla Lamb Fund, a fund which helps to defray the costs of lodging and transportation for island cancer patients who must travel off-island for treatment and care. Jules raised money and awareness for this important cause and we at Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket are so grateful for his efforts!
