­­Editor's note: The Echo Press printed a story, "Stroke survivor in for a long run down under," on August 1 that featured former Alexandrian Dan Englund's attempt to raise money and awareness for stroke research. His goal was to run 1,000 kilometers (about 621 miles) from Emerald, Australia to Brisbane. The newspaper has since learned that he successfully completed the run and raised more than $40,000.
