Virtual 2020 Maine Marathon Marr Fund Team

Join the Marr Family for the Maine Marathon and help us support the Josephine and John Marr Alzheimer’s Research Fund at Brigham and Women's Hospital. Due to COVID-19, this year’s race will be a  little different. Instead of running in Maine, you can run or walk wherever you are in the world between September 26 and October 12! All fitness levels  are welcome. While no fundraising commitment is required, participants who raise $150+ will receive a custom Marr Fund wicking shirt. Plus, receive more great prizes the more you raise!

About the Marr Fund Team

Between September 26 and October 12, the Marr Fund Team will participate in the Virtual 2020 Maine Marathon. Family and friends can run or walk any distance, anywhere in the world, to support the Josephine and John Marr Alzheimer’s Research Fund at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Established by the Marr family, the fund supports a visionary Alzheimer’s research initiative aimed at ultimately preventing the disease.

Today, more than five million Americans are courageously fighting Alzheimer’s disease. But the Marr family—together with world-renowned researchers at the Brigham—are focused on finding a way to stop Alzheimer’s disease altogether. Backed by more than 30 years of research, Brigham leaders, Drs. Dennis Selkoe and Reisa Sperling are leading and pioneering innovative approaches to advance the prevention and treatment of this devastating disease. You can read more about the research here: bwhgiving.org/marr-fund.

In six years, the Marr Fund team has already made a great impact on furthering Alzheimer’s prevention research, most notably raising over $1MM through the Maine Marathon event itself and helping to be a catalyst for a separate $25MM gift from visionary philanthropists Andrew and Kate Davis and the Shelby Cullom Davis Charitable Fund.

Thank you for joining us in this fight to prevent Alzheimer’s. Together we can make a difference—now and for future generations.
