Jackson resident running in Boston Marathon for cancer research

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Jackson resident Michael Glover is running to conquer cancer as a member of the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge team in the 123rd Boston Marathon this April 15.

Along with more than 500 Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge teammates from across the United States and around the world, Glover will run Massachusetts’ historic marathon route from Hopkinton to Boston to raise $6 million for cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

This year marks the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge (DFMC) team’s 30th annual running in the Boston Marathon. One hundred percent of the money raised by DFMC goes to Dana-Farber’s Claudia Adams Barr Program in Innovative Basic Cancer Research that supports promising science research in its earliest stages. The Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge has raised nearly $93 million to date.

Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge runners include cancer survivors and patients, and family and friends of those who have been affected by cancer. Each team member must fulfill a basic fundraising commitment:

  • Invitational runners, runners who receive their entry from Dana-Farber, have a fundraising commitment of $5,000.
  • Own entry runners, runners who have joined the DFMC after obtaining their own race entry, have a fundraising commitment of $4,000.
