WHY I'M RUNNING THE 2024 ASICS FALMOUTH ROAD RACE TO DEFY CANCER

On February 27th, 2023, Adelia, a fearless 2nd grader at South Elementary School, was diagnosed with an incurable brain tumor called Diffuse Midline Glioma. She was given a death sentence and 9-12 months to live. Today, after 4 brain surgeries, 63 radiation treatments, and countless other pokes, scans, and procedures, Adelia is 15 months post-prognosis and still fighting with all her might. With only experimental phase 1 clinical trials as treatment options, we need to do better for Adelia and all of the other children facing this monster of a disease.

The Team Adelia the Wondergirl fundraising efforts will go toward a new and desperately needed Brain Tumor Center that bridges Dana Farber and Boston Children's Hospital.

On August 18, I will be running on Team Adelia and we will run alongside hundreds of Dana-Farber runners in the 52nd running of the ASICS Falmouth Road Race! We are training to run 7-miles along Cape Cod’s scenic coastline, while raising critical funds that directly support Dana-Farber Cancer Institute patients and families, in New England and around the world.

Every mile and each donation, no matter the size, supports The Dana-Farber Campaign, the Institute’s ambitious, multi-year fundraising effort, focused on supporting revolutionary research, extraordinary care, exceptional expertise, and other priorities, to help Dana-Farber accomplish its mission of preventing, treating, and defying cancer.

Thank you for your support! Together, we are helping Dana-Farber race toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
