I am so Proud to be able to say I am a 10 year Streaker of the 26.2 with Donna race weekend! I knew right away when this event started here in Jacksonville, I had to be part of it and keep my promise to my grandmother who battled breast cancer for several years, to do everything I can do to help find a cure for this horrible disease.

For the past 6 years I have been running a half marathon a month, while completing the 50 states, and The DONNA is my 'grande finale' being my only full marathon as proceeds benefit The Mayo Clinic for breast cancer research and The Donna Foundation to help those in financial need for treatments. 2017 DONNA Marathon will be my 8th marathon attempt, with a personal record each year!?By race day, I will have completed 30 states and 70 half marathons!

Please show your support with donation today! You can also follow my 10 year journey at or on Facebook under Pink Feet

The DONNA Foundation is a private non-profit organization in Northeast Florida producing the only marathon in the U.S. dedicated to breast cancer research, awareness and care.  Its mission is to passionately raise funds for ground breaking breast cancer research and women living with breast cancer.

Since its launch in 2003, The DONNA Foundation has raised more than $4 million towards its vision to finish breast cancer.

The DONNA Foundation provides financial assistance for the critical needs of women and men living with breast cancer. To date, The DONNA Foundation has served more than 10,000 families. The DONNA Foundation also helped to develop and maintain the Mayo Clinic Breast Cancer Translational Genomics Program. Ongoing funding from the foundation 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.
