Help me conquer cancer!

DANA-FARBER literally saved my life - the least I can do is run a few miles and raise a few bucks!!

In April 2018, I received the news that I was officially in remission following a diagnosis of Stage IIA Hodgkin's Lymphoma and 6 months of bi-weekly  chemotherapy treatments.   With the amazing support of my wife, my family and friends - I had done it, beat cancer!  


The following months were spent getting back to a 'normal' life.  Along with the flurry of follow-up appointments, I was able to return to traveling for work (which had been temporarily suspended during treatment), resume going on vacations, hanging out with friends, and just getting out of the house more and doing things.  I also had signed up for the Boston Athletic Association Distance Medley and completed the 5K, 10K, and Half-Marathon!


I have wanted to participate in the Boston Marathon for some time now.  I learned of the opportunity to help raise money for Dana-Farber and run on their team and thought this was the perfect opportunity!  I ran the half-marathon for me, to prove that I could do anything.  I am running the Boston Marathon for Dana-Farber, to help raise as much money as possible for cancer research to help others in the future!


On April 15, 2019, I will take to the streets, along with hundreds of Dana-Farber runners to participate in the 123rd Boston Marathon®. The Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge team runs and raises funds with thousands of special people in mind. From Hopkinton to Boston, we carry thoughts of those people every step of the way.
 
100% of every dollar raised  supports the Claudia Adams Barr Program in Innovative Basic Cancer Research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. These funds are fueling some of today's most promising basic cancer research.  Throughout my fundraising, along with this page, I will be hosting some fundraising events (raffles, etc.) so keep an eye out for additional fundraising opportunities! 
 
Thank you so much in advance for any form of support you are able to offer, monetary or not, throughout my journey to train and run the marathon!  It means so much to me and will help fight cancer!!
