Marathon Surfer Continues Efforts Today | SLIDESHOWS | News
JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. -- Kurtis Loftus, dubbed the "Marathon Surfer" will continue his efforts today for breast cancer by surfing another 16 hours to raise money for the 26.2 With Donna Foundation.
Loftus began surfing around 1:00 p.m. Wednesday and is attempting to break the record for the longest time surfing. He is aiming for 29 hours on the water. Loftus is allowed one 15 minute break every three hours, but must make up that time in the waves. In all, it will take about 32 hours to log 29 in the surf.
The "Marathon Surfer" is asking people to sponsor his attempt by donating to the 26.2 With Donna Foundation, which raised money for benchtop breast cancer research at the Mayo Clinic, and to care for the underserved with breast cancer on the First Coast through The Donna Foundation.
