Have you already secured your bib for this year’s #BAAHalfMarathon? Make more meaning with your miles by joining our presenting sponsors’, @DanaFarber and @TheJimmyFund ’s team!
Join runners like Ashley, who runs for her brother:
“My brother Mike has lived with thyroid cancer for more than twenty years. Dana-Farber has brought Mike and our family hope through clinical trials. Because of those treatments, he’s able to watch his nephews and niece grow up.”
“Running for Dana-Farber gives me an opportunity to use a passion of mine to make a difference in the life of my brother and so many others. Every dollar I raise over the course of each mile I run could help be the reason a patient sees their children grow up.”

Join Julie, who is running in honor of her son:
“Our 5-year-old son, Henry, has a low-grade glioma, a type of brain tumor. The first line of treatment is chemotherapy, and we are grateful that it has been an effective option for our son. We envision a future with easier, curative, targeted therapies as the mainstay for this chronic childhood disease.”
“Dana-Farber is a leader in pediatric brain tumor research. I run to support their efforts because I believe emerging therapies could directly impact my son and improve care for all pediatric brain tumor patients. When we look at Henry, we see so much potential for his life. We want him to live fully, capably, and joyfully.”
