Knoxville MarathonPaul Erway recognizes a big challenge, and he’s not one to back down from it.

Erway, a paraplegic since a car accident in 1980, is one of three members of the “50 Ability Marathon Team” affiliated with the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation dedicated to curing spinal cord injury.

Erway and two other wheelchair athletes, Grant Berthiaume and Aaron Roux, are attempting to compete in 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 weeks.

Sunday’s Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon will be the 13th marathon for the trio.

“It’s a big challenge,” Erway said. “You always need to have something to shoot for. Everybody needs goals.”
