"I am happy to support Tellman and his extraordinary endeavor," said Symon in a press statement. "I can’t imagine the pain and suffering of running barefoot on pavement for even one mile, much less the 500 that he has already run. It is a tremendous commitment and a great personal sacrifice."
The meet-and-greet event begins at 11 a.m. at the Bellefaire JCB Center in Shaker Heights, Ohio. For more information or to donate, visit www.runtellmanrun.com or www.tellman.org.
