"Running Through" chronicles the battle that All-Ivy running back Jordan Culbreath '11 waged against a rare blood disease between 2009 and 2010. Culbreath not only survived his fight with aplastic anemia, but returned to the Tigers' backfield for his senior season in 2010.

The Princeton Varsity Club will hold a screening of "Running Through" at Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall on Tuesday, April 26th at 7:30 PM.
There will be a panel Q&A following the film. Scheduled panelists include Culbreath; Princeton Director of Athletic Medicine, Dr. Margot Putukian; and the director of the film, A.D. Pearson. Following the Q&A, the PVC will be hosting an informal reception at Prospect House for attendees.
In February, 2011, Culbreath was named by Uplifting Athletes as its "2011 Rare Disease Champion." The award is presented annually to recognize a leader in the world of college football who has made a positive and lasting impact on the rare disease community (read the release from GoPrincetonTigers.com here). Representatives from the Princeton chapter of Uplifting Athletes will be on hand at the event for those wishing to make donations to their selected charity, the Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation (visit the official Uplifting Athletes website by clicking here, and the AAMDS website by clicking here).
