About this Event

On April 15, hundreds of Dana-Farber runners will take to the streets 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.

There are many people in our lives that have been affected by this horrific disease and we are honored to be running for two very special people. I am running for my Dad, who lost his battle with cancer 23 years ago. After a short fight, he was taken from us way too soon. I know he is missed by many and I am humbled to be able to run in his memory. The special person inspiring me to run in this race is my life-long friend, Amy. Since she was first diagnosed with stage IIIC Colon Cancer three years ago, Amy has been fighting tirelessly with the utmost strength and courage every single day. Amy's driving force is her 3-year-old daughter who constantly tells her to "Just keep swimming, Mama!" Her passion for life is motivating me to fight not only for her, but for all those who have been impacted by this horrible disease.

One hundred percent of every dollar raised by the DFMC team 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.

Running 26.2 miles is nothing compared to what Amy has gone through. Supporting the Barr Investigators and their critical scientific strides will make all my training more than worthwhile.

Thank you for your support! Together, we're headed toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.

Thank you for your support!

Elizabeth & Steph
