26.2 With Donna: The National Marathon to Fight Breast Cancer

Looking for motivation to run 26.2 miles? Why not run with Donna in the inaugural race of The National Marathon to Fight Breast Cancer?

I think running to support a cause is not only wonderful motivation, but also, with this race every cent of your entrance fee, and any other donation, go directly to the Mayo Clinic and to women living with breast cancer. Donna Hickman, the woman behind the foundation behind the marathon, is a Jasksonville news anchor, and she is also a woman living with breast cancer. You can read her journal blog and learn about her personal trials and tribulations while battling breast cancer. She created The Donna Hickman Foundation to help financially support women in The First Coast area of Florida who are also living with cancer.

Donna is not only a two-time breast cancer survivor who has recently reentered the battle again, but also an avid runner, cyclist and swimmer. It just makes sense that her organization would create a marathon as a fundraising event. If you are not ready to run the full 26.2 miles, you can run the half marathon. The race will be held in Jacksonville, Florida, on Feb. 17. Just in case you are curious, the race is a qualifier for the Boston Marathon.
