Why am I running?
After running 4 Marathons, I am still inspired to participate in the Boston Marathon, which I have run 3 times before, and see the fruits of the hard work of my training come to life but also more importantly, the donations from my friends and family put to an important and valuable use for a great cause - The Ellie Fund!
Please donate whatever you can!
Supporting Patients. Funding Care. Providing Hope.
"Chemotherapy wreaks havoc on your body but that in no way compared to the sense of helplessness I felt when I couldn’t feed my daughter. I remember the day my grant from the Ellie Fund arrived. When I went to the mailbox, I not only received grocery store gift cards, but I also received the most important gift of all - hope." - Nicole
The Ellie Fund is proud to once again be a part of the John Hancock Marathon Non-Profit Program. Your generous donation in support of our runners will benefit our Healing Together Patient and Family Care Program and Metastatic Breast Cancer Support Program, providing essential support services to breast cancer patients and their families including:
Nutritional and grocery assistance
Transportation to medical appointments
The Boston Marathon was the catalyst to the Ellie Fund’s fundraising efforts with co-founders Jeff and Eliot Popkin running in 1989, 1994 and 1996. We are honored to once again use this historic event as an important platform to help change the lives of the women, men and children that line the marathon route each year.
