On Sunday, October 2, we (Sarah Monaghan, Sam Wilcoxon and Sarah Joyce) will be joining the Marr team of family and friends to run the 2016 Maine Marathon in support of 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.
All three of us has witnessed friends and family members lives impacted by Alzheimer's, so the least we can do to raise money for a worthy cause is run a couple of miles in Maine.
Help us reach our fundraising goal!

Today, more than five million Americans are courageously fighting Alzheimer’s disease. But the Marr family—together with world-renowned researchers at BWH—are focused on finding a way to stop Alzheimer’s disease altogether. Backed by more than 30 years of research, BWH leaders, Drs. Dennis Selkoe and Reisa Sperling are leading and pioneering innovative approaches to advance the prevention and treatment of this devastating disease.
Thank you for joining us in this fight to prevent Alzheimer’s. Together we can make a difference—now and for future generations.
