“Runner in Red” is Racing to Support a Cure for Lung Cancer!

Tom Murphy’s novel, Runner in Red, not only offers a page-turning mystery story that explores the history of women’s running, but also provides a platform for a charity 5K race/walk series to raise funds to find a cure for lung cancer – which takes the lives of more women than any other cancer.  See more at

Proceeds from the novel – as well as the 5K race – go to the Barb’s Beer Foundation, a 501c3, which raises funds to cure lung cancer in memory of Barb Murphy, Tom’s late wife and a marathon runner who passed away from lung cancer.
