BENEFITING: The DONNA Foundation
ORGANIZER: Mary Jacob
EVENT: 2018 DONNA Marathon Weekend
EVENT DATE: Feb 11, 2018
We are celebrating the end of my cousin Mary Jacob's breast cancer treatment by raising money and participating in Donna's Breast Cancer Marathon Weekend. A group of us are running and walking the half marathon. For months MJ did not feel well enough to exercise, but since finishing chemo at the end of February and surgery in March, she is grateful for the challenge of sucking wind and burning legs during runs. While she had success in her journey, we've met too many women with a different prognosis. They will be fighting much longer than MJ and more will be diagnosed. We are excited to run this half marathon as a celebration of MJ's victory, and to raise money for research and assistance for women in their fight.
