“I know people who were blessed to have early detection,” he said. “I want the money to stay in Gulf County.”

Novak has set up a donation account online to raise funds through the website CrowdRise.com. His goal is to raise $5,000 for the Guild and he’s over halfway there.

Residents and businesses who wish to support Novak can log onto the website and pledge for each mile of the marathon. Whereas four years ago he had to send letters and take donations by mail, the internet has made the process much more streamlined and efficient.

“Friends, family and local businesses have been tremendous in their support,” he said. “It’s amazing how easy it is to get the word out.”

In addition to local donations Novak said that he’s shocked at the support he’s received from people he doesn’t even know.

Supporters from California, Indiana, Pennsylvania and New Jersey have all donated to his cause.

During his previous marathon experience, Novak was able to raise several thousand dollars to keep his local Kiwanis Club going.
