Defy cancer with the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge!
Defy cancer with the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge!

Let's Run Toward a World Without Cancer!

Living a block from Mile 17 on the Boston Marathon route, I have been inspired watching thousands take to the streets each April to complete the world's oldest annual marathon.


When I learned that the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute fields a team of runners who help raise funds to support their mission, I decided to sign up.  So, on April 15th, I'll be running the Boston Marathon -- 26.2 miles, from Hopkinton, Massachusetts to Boston.


I've never run a race before, but like all of us, I have family, friends, colleagues, teachers, neighbors, and so many more who have been impacted by, or tragically lost to, the scourge of cancer.  I am running to honor all of them and to support Dana-Farber, a world leader in the research and treatment of adult and pediatric cancer, based right here in Boston.  I would be proud to represent your support too.


Every donation counts -- $5, $10, or more -- and 100% of the funds go directly to cancer research.


I'll also make you a deal: I'll match up to $250 of every donation received!


Please consider donating, and let's run together toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
