Three months ago, Rabbi Mendy Rimler and ASU graduate student Greg Haft set foot to pavement and trekked with a purpose. On Jan. 15, both men raced in the Rock n’ Roll half-marathon as “Team Brandon.”
Rimler, adviser to Chabad at ASU, formulated the plan and set it in motion for the two to run the half-marathon on behalf of biomedical engineering senior, Brandon Londer. Rimler said Londer was diagnosed with a disease called CJD, or Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease in his junior year.
