Iowan Finds Purpose in Running for Names

AVOCA, Iowa - Some days Rik Zortman runs two miles other days it's as many at 16. The runs are calculated right down to the turns, and angles. "Whether it's diagonal, vertical, they all mean something to somebody," Zortman says.

The pattern eventually spells out a name. Usually, it's the name of a child cancer victim.
