Falls Church resident Michael Glover will run the 120th Boston Marathon as part of the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge Team, which is representing Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. All of the money raised by Glover and his teammates will fun the Claudia Adams Barr Program, a leading program for innovation in cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Glover, along with more than 550 Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge teammates from across the United States and around the world, will run Massachusetts’ historic marathon route from Hopkinton to Boston with a goal to raise $5.4 million for cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. This year marks the 27th annual running of the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge.
Since its inception in 1990, the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge has raised nearly $75 million for the Barr Program. Dana-Farber Trustees J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver founded the Barr Program in 1987 to honor Mrs. Weaver’s mother, Claudia Adams Barr, who died from cancer 30 years earlier. For more information, visit rundanafarber.org.
