Running a 5k run is pretty amazing period, but add in the fact that this year a 95 year old man ran a 5k to help support a Children’s Hospital is amazing. 

Edward Burnham is a former colonel in the United States Air Force with 37 years of military service to his name. He was born in Connecticut in 1919, moved to the Kansas City area in the late 60s and is a former Chiefs season ticket member who still watches from home.

He has run in 143 marathons, one in every state and more overseas, in countries including Siberia, Finland, England, Germany, Canada, Mexico and Poland, according to the Chiefs website.

This is pretty amazing, Congrats!!!
