Tara Sullivan, along with her sister Emily, raised over $18,000 running as a member of the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge Team (DFMC) in the 120th running of the Boston Marathon. Members of the team raise funds to support Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s goal to find better therapies and, ultimately, cures for cancer. This was Tara’s first Boston Marathon, Emily’s second, and we were proud to support her efforts and cheer her on!

One hundred percent of every dollar raised by the DFMC team supports the Claudia Adams Barr Program in Innovative Basic Cancer Research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Based on a rigorous and highly selective process, the Barr Program funds the brightest, most creative scientists making basic research discoveries that are transforming cancer treatment. Since its inception in 1990, DFMC has raised more than $74 million, resulting in improved survival rates and quality of life for cancer patients everywhere. Go Tara!
