JAF is excited to announce that we will have 26 athletes participate in the 125th Boston Marathon®! This year’s team is is comprised of first-time runners, experienced marathoners, individuals touched by cancer, and friends who want to fundraise for and represent JAF while participating in one of the most elite road races in the world.
This year’s race has two components: a virtual race and an in-person race. Eighteen of our athletes will be participating in the in-person race (Monday, October 11) and six of our athletes will be participating in the virtual race (Friday, October 8 through Sunday, October 10).
All funds raised by our Team JAF athletes will directly support the Foundation’s mission of providing help, hope, and a reason to smile for cancer patients and their families. Team JAF athletes play a critical role in raising funds and creating awareness for JAF to address the hidden cost of cancer that is impacting families across New England.
