Escorted by the Avalon Police Department and and being led by a small company of US Marines, a very tired and proud Matthew Cubbler crossed the finish line in Avalon Sunday May 18th. The crowd cheered as the US Army Veteran and Collegeville Police Officer ran in time with his escort.

Matthew Cubbler‘s family was close at hand. He wife Lauren told of a woman in a Mercedes Benz who stopped and asked what the hub bub was about, and wen told about Cubbler’s run, she donated $100 on the spot. It’s never to late to loosen your Starbucks fund to help a good cause. Check out his site for more information

Cubbler was given the key to the city and while delivering his speech, he became so overwhelmed , and his wife continued the story of his brother. This is the true test of a good mate, she had his six all the time. To archive what Cubbler did this weekend can only be considered pushing the limits of human endurance. Consider three consecutive Marathons in as many days. Regaining his composure he closed his speech thanking everyone for their support, as the first few drops of rain began to fall.
