Sean Doherty: I’m running the 2020 Boston Marathon with One Mission because I know what it’s like to battle cancer at a young age and have seen firsthand the toll that it takes on patients and their family members. Having just recently finished chemotherapy, I hope to show current patients and other survivors that they can still achieve big things after their diagnosis.
Miles Jones: I am running the 2020 Boston Marathon to generate support for pediatric cancer patients and the family and friends affected by their fight. So many have been affected by this awful disease. I have had multiple family members and friends battle cancer, most recently with my good friend Sean fighting and conquering testicular cancer. I also want to run in memory of my Uncle Jake who recently passed away from complications due to cancer treatment. He changed so many lives through generosity, kindness and a genuine care for all people no matter what the circumstances were. By running for One Mission, I hope to generate support and create a positive outlook for children and families fighting cancer.
Kaitlin Tsai: I’m running the 2020 Boston Marathon with One Mission to help support the young patients and their families who are undergoing such troublesome times. I’ve been present for two bouts with cancer, first with my mom and more recently, with my boyfriend, Sean. These experiences showed me how important it is for patients to have a strong support system. By raising money for One Mission, I hope to provide patients and their families with any additional support needed during their battle
Jacob Westphal: I’m running the 2020 Boston Marathon with One Mission in order to raise money to help bring a bit of normalcy into the lives of children with cancer. I’ve seen first hand how cancer affects kids at a young age, with my best friend Sean beating cancer after months of chemotherapy. By running, I hope to raise awareness about One Mission and its excellent programs. By donating to One Mission we can help ease the pain of pediatric cancer for patients and their families.
