To Make a Donation to the 2016 team

Please visit my fundraising page to make a donation to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (www.runDFMC.org/2017/jennies).

It's T-Shirt Time

It's t-shirt time again, friends!  We are again selling shirts (cotton and performance fabric) and new this year are hoodies!  There is a wide ranges of sizes and styles so there's something for everyone!  We wear these shirts in honor of our friends and family members who have faced a cancer diagnosis.  This year we chose to incorporate a tree which is often thought to be a symbol of strength (trunk), healing (leaves), and sustenance and livelihood (branches).

Check out the options at:  www.booster.com/begoodbestrong2016

The funds raised from the proceeds of the shirts and any additional gifts will go directly to fund basic cancer research, and as noted by one of the scientists (who is also a runner on the team), "we've learned more about cancer in the last decade than we have in the last century" and our support of this program has been instrumental to that process.  Based on a rigorous and highly selective process, the brightest, most creative scientists are making basic research discoveries that are transforming cancer treatment. These numerous breakthroughs have resulted in improved survival rates and quality of life for thousands of patients everywhere Our support makes a direct difference in these labs! For eight years, I've helped to individually raise over $250,000 so I KNOW our gifts have made an impact.  Thank you for year after year giving as generously as you have. 

As in past year, don't forget to wear your shirt on Marathon Monday (April 18) and post t Facebook or email.  As I wait to start the marathon each year, I have been overwhelmed with emotion at the pictures and messages you all have shared.  It carries me from start to finish, and I am humbled each and every year by such kindness.



With tremendous gratitude and thanks,
Jennie
