Marathon runner saves minutes, raises money



Hagerstown lawyer Roger Schlossberg shaved more than 40 minutes off his time in Sunday's Marine Corps Marathon and is confident he'll approach the fund-raising total he set when he ran the race last year.

Schlossberg ran in the Marine Corps Marathon in part to raise money for a Washington, D.C. AIDS service provider through the National AIDS Marathon Training Program.

As of last week, Schlossberg had raised about $14,000. He said that over the past few days thousands more had been sent in.

"If I don't make $20,000 I'll eat your hat," Schlossberg said Monday.

Schlossberg said he expects to match the $23,000 he raised last year.

He finished the 26.2-mile race in 5 hours 39 minutes.

His time last year was 6 hours 20 minutes.

Schlossberg is raising money through the training program for the Whitman-Walker Clinic, which provides health care to AIDS patients through its Elizabeth Taylor Medical Center in Washington.

Although the race is over, people can still make contributions, Schlossberg said.

For information, contact Schlossberg at 301-739-8610 or visit the training program Web site at www.aidsmarathon.com.

Schlossberg's training program identification number is 1426.
