"Logan » A Utah woman is running from Utah's border with Idaho to its border with Arizona to raise money for an organization that helps provide prosthetics for athletes who are amputees.

Lorie Hutchison is running 18 marathons over 18 days. The 45-year-old started her journey on Thursday and is scheduled to finish the 465-mile trip on Oct. 4.

The LifeFlight nurse for Intermountain Healthcare is trying to raise money for San Diego-based Challenged Athletes Foundation, which provides grants for prosthetics and adaptive equipment for athletes who are amputees.

Hutchison also hopes to inspire youth across Utah to exercise more. She is partnering with Intermountain's LiVe campaign and wants children to exercise for 26 minutes for 18 days straight."
