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

In February of 2023 our dear friend and classmate Adelia was diagnosed with an incurable brain tumor called Diffuse Midline Glioma. She was given 9-12 months to live.  As she truly is a “Wonder Girl”,   she has defied the odds with grace and a strength and is 15+ months post prognosis.  With only experimental early stage clinical trials as treatment options, we need to do better for Adelia and all of the other children facing this monster of a disease.

This year we will be dedicated all of our fundraising efforts to a new and desperately needed Brain Tumor Center that bridges Dana Farber and Boston Children's Hospital. This center is being spearheaded by Dr. Baird, arguably the best pediatric neurosurgeon in the world, and Dr. Filbin, one of the most brilliant and motivated researchers in this space.  This center strives to develop personalized, precision medicine, where they can deliver rapid real-time molecular analysis to allow more effective treatments to start sooner. The center will also be developing support systems for families, a vital necessity and currently a missing piece in providing high quality continuum of care.

Please support us as we run for Adelia, her amazing family, and all of the other families and children's facing this diagnosis. We will raise vital funds, elevate awareness about pediatric brain cancer, become part of the cure for this horrific disease. We can't wait to see you in Falmouth onAugust 18!

Our team 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.
