THE STORY:

I am very excited to be running for the first time in support of a charity foundation.  Having worked for the past 30 years in the pursuit of the discovery of novel drugs to better the lives of patients and most recently starting a company focused on immunotherapy for cancer, I was greatly struck by the mission of the Melanoma Foundation of New England (MFNE), particularly its efforts associated with the prevention of melanoma.  Given the opportunities to genuinely impact the prevalence of this cancer, I felt that it would be great to run the Boston Marathon with a passionate and committed Team in support of the outreach and other activities of the MFNE that can TRULY MAKE A DIFFERENCE in preventing the occurrence of this cancer---wouldn't it be great to impact the number of people that need therapy in the first place.  I hope that you will join me in supporting this fantastic cause; I will match your contributions toward my goal, dollar for dollar, up to a total of $10,000.  More information on the Foundation and its involvement in the Boston Marathon follow.

While we are forever changed by the events that took place on April 15, 2013 and the days that followed, we will not let this define our experience. Before the tragedies on Marathon Monday, Team Running for Cover was already a remarkable group of individuals who came together to take on the challenge of the marathon and raise money for a cause they are passionate about.  They are now forever bonded, pulling together as teammates – and now friends – they supported each other and never waivered in their dedication to the team’s mission. 

The Melanoma Foundation of New England's mission is to reduce the incidents of melanoma in the New England region through education, prevention and support. MFNE hosts a range of educational programs to spread awareness. These programs include Your Skin Is In, a program teaching high school and college students the dangers of tanning, and The Skinny on Skin, which teaches beauty professionals to recognize potential melanomas on the head, neck and scalp of their clients.

Team Running for Cover is running the 2014 Boston Marathon to raise funds to support MFNE's mission. All funds raised will be used to fund and expand these educational programs throughout the New England Area.

I was in Boston last year the week of the marathon and so impressed with the genuine caring amongst the marathoners and the community for each other. Happy to support as a tribute to researchers and physicians for wiping out melanoma but also for the resilience of the Boston marathon community. 5 years ago
