HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (1010 WINS) -- Some people dream of one day running a marathon.

One Long Island woman wants to un what adds up to seven marathons in seven days to raise money for a very good cause.

Eva Casale has already finished 54 marathons and said she will run a total of 184 miles as she tours Long Island to help America's heroes.

She starts on Sunday. Each run will focus on honoring local service members who were killed in action.

Casale told 1010 WINS some other runners will jog along for part of the time to offer support.

"Team Eva stands for 'every veteran appreciated' and that's what this week is about, to make sure that we remember and we appreciate all those who have fought for our freedom and those who have given up their lives so we can live here in this wonderful country," she said.
