Jeff Anderson had never ran more than five miles until he heard the news of his close friend Tim Weber. Tim was diagnosed with Stage 3 Melanoma, so Jeff started training for the Boston Marathon. Last April, he ran and completed the race. Jeff has raised over $12,500 for Tim’s Pay It Forward campaign to raise money for the Samuel Oschin Cancer Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Jeff is 37. He works for Oracle and lives in Duxbury, Massachusetts, with his wife and three kids.
