The Ellie Fund is proud to announce our runners for the 2015 Boston Marathon: Jeffrey Harrelson, Christopher Doney and Penny Fireman!
This year the Ellie Fund joins the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program in honoring an anniversary year with the 2015 Boston Marathon. Founded in 1995, the Ellie Fund looks forward to celebrating its 20th year with the same event that ignited the Ellie Fund’s fundraising efforts.
With the help of this year's runners we are striving to raise $30,000 to help change the lives of the women, men and children that line the marathon route each year.
The mission of the Ellie Fund is to provide support services to breast cancer patients to ease the stresses of everyday life, allowing the focus to be on recovery, family and healing. The services that the Ellie Fund provides include:
- Transportation to medical appointments
- Prepared and delivered healthy meals
A breast cancer diagnosis means physical, emotional and financial stress, not only for the patient, but the entire family. We provide a strong support system to help alleviate the effects of breast cancer and allow the patient, and their family, to focus on what matters – healing.
Thank you for your support and kind generosity!
