The purpose of the race was to raise money for the fight against breast cancer—a special interest of Marilyn Quayle, whose mother died of the disease. The run's $530,000 in receipts will be divided among four breast cancer foundations. Some observers saw another benefit, a noticeable thaw in Marilyn Quayle's often icy media image. "An interesting fallout of this for Marilyn is that people are getting to know her in a different light," said Lynda Carter. "She's not stuffy. She's really got charisma." As for the not-terribly-competitive event, one Michael Regan clocked in first at 14:58. Trailing the winner, his two sons and 991 other runners, the Vice President came in at 24:33-slightly bushed, but happy.
