Yasir Salem

Yasir Salem is a man on a mission, and Comfort Leaf is proud to announce that we are now officially sponsoring Yasir starting with the 2018 New York City Marathon.

Yasir will be running 50 marathons in 50 states, ending with the NYC marathon in 2019. He is taking on this enormous feat to honor and celebrate his late wife Gweneviere. He is raising money for the Gweneviere Mann Foundation (GMF) to spread awareness and fund early detection of lung cancer and brain tumor programs.

While the “50 in 50” initiative may be new, distance running has been an important part of life for both Yasir and Gwen since 2008. You can hear a first-person account of their shared passion on Story Corps.

After 10 years of running together – Gwen was diagnosed with a rare form of lung cancer in the summer of 2018, and she passed away in July. 

Yasir now runs in her honor, to raise funds and awareness for a foundation that she enthusiastically endorsed before she died.

Yasir Salem Has Been Featured In:

Gweneviere Mann Foundation (GMF):

The Gweneviere Mann Foundation (GMFwas created to honor the memory of Gweneviere Mann, an accomplished musician, writer and marathon runner who overcame a brain tumor only to ten years later lose a battle with a rare form of lung cancer.
Throughout her life, Gweneviere was committed to learning and growing as and artist and athlete — and always thriving. She used her challenges following brain surgery to inspire her music and writing. Gwen became a marathon runner, tackling seven New York City marathons and the Harrisburg marathon.
The Gweneviere Mann Foundation has been established to help more people get scanned for brain tumor and lung cancer early so that they can thrive in life like Gweneviere did.
