Pink. Proud. And part of the Finish.
We are honored to be a part of the Donna 26.2 this February. DONNA Marathon Weekend welcomes thousands of runners and supporters from all over the world. The weekend kicks off with the opening of the DONNA Expo presented by TapImmune on Friday, February 12 at Noon. Don’t miss the DONNA 5K & Family Fun Run presented by Jaguars Foundation Saturday, February 13. Marathon races begin at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, February 14 at the Celgene Start Line near THE PLAYERS Parking Lot off ATP Tour Boulevard in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
Runners will begin along historic coastal A1A, and meander through the unique beach communities of Ponte Vedra Beach, Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach and Atlantic Beach. Panoramic views of the intracoastal waterway and tidal marshland welcome runners to finish the race, and breast cancer, at Mayo Clinic.
THE STORY BEHIND THE FINISH
26.2 with DONNA is a private non-profit organization producing the only marathon in the U.S. dedicated to breast cancer research and care. Funds from DONNA helped to develop and maintain the Mayo Clinic Breast Cancer Translational Genomics Program. These funds make it possible for the laboratory team not only to conduct state of the art breast cancer research, including the widely publicized Triple Negative Breast Cancer Vaccine Trials, but also provide genomics support for studies in all cancers. Funds also support The Donna Foundation, providing financial assistance for the critical needs of more than 8,500 women and men living with breast cancer.
