JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Many of you spend your mornings or free time jogging down the street of the River City.

Chris Roman plans to do a whole lot of jogging, and for a good cause.

Roman is going to run the Jacksonville Bank Marathon this weekend, twice.  He'll set out around 2 a.m. to run and finish the 26.2 mile race just in time to do it again at 7 a.m with everyone else.

Roman is running for a reason.  The reason is a 5-year-old boy from Ponte Vedra named Tim.  Tim has a prosthetic leg.  Roman is trying to raise money for the Challenged Athletes Foundation which helps children like Tim with costly prosthetics.
