BENEFITING: Brigham and Women's Hospital
EVENT: 2017 Maine Marathon
EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2017
Josephine Marr is my dear Aunt. I have such fond memories of her growing up as our families did so much together. My mother and my aunt were best friends. From cookouts to boating to going to the beach and playing cards, the ten cousins and our parents had a ball. Penie as we fondly call her, was the life of the party - funny and full of energy.
Then alzheimers struck. So we are running again the Maine Marathon this year as a relay team to raise money to support the Josephine and John Marr Alzheimer’s Research Fund at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH). Established by the Marr family, the fund supports a visionary Alzheimer’s research initiative aimed at ultimately preventing the disease.
The Honan's Heroes team is me, my sister Ellen, my brother Tom and Ellen's husband Dick Curry. Please consider supporting my leg of the run to help Honan's Heroes fight for the cure to end alzheimers and prevent other families from losing a loved one.
