Evansville Runner Bob Wolf Passes Away from Brain Cancer

The Evansville running community is mourning after the loss of an area legend.

Bob Wolf passed away following a lengthy battle with brain cancer on the morning of November 8th.

Wolf was one of the first members of Team 13, a group of runners who train together for the Evansville Half Marathon.

When he was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year, Wolf made a goal to take part in his 15th Half Marathon. He was able to do so with help from family and friends who call themselves the “Wolf Pack.” They started a Go Fund Me page to raise enough money to buy a racing wheelchair and met their goal within just three weeks.

Wolf took part in his final Half Marathon last month with the help of his Wolf Pack.

A date for his funeral has not been set.
