Redefine your personal best: Race for Dana-Farber
Did you know the next race you run could help find cancer cures? Join Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Running the Race Against Cancer® program and compete as an individual or as part of an official team while supporting Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund’s mission to conquer all forms of cancer.

Why you should run for Dana-Farber & the Jimmy Fund
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, located in Boston, Massachusetts, provides expert, compassionate care to children and adults across the globe and is home to revolutionary cancer discoveries. Since its founding in 1948, the Jimmy Fund has raised millions of dollars through thousands of community efforts to advance Dana-Farber’s lifesaving mission.

Choose your own race and pace
Through the Running the Race Against Cancer® program, you can run in any race, of any distance, in any city around the world while raising critical funds to benefit Dana-Farber in its pursuit to eradicate cancer. You set your own pace by choosing your racing event and establishing your own fundraising goals, with DFCI providing support every step of the way. Registering is easy. Once you’ve chosen your event and secured your race entry through the race’s official registration process, visit to officially join the Running the Race Against Cancer® program. All participants receive a personalized fundraising web page, fundraising incentives, and online tools that help you spread the word to everyone know that you’re racing toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.

Join the team
You can also do your part to help fight this disease by joining an official Dana-Farber Team in one of a select group of races. As a team member, you will receive a race entry, Dana-Farber racing jersey, training support, and fundraising help to reach the team fundraising minimum requirement. Dana-Farber currently has teams in the following events: B.A.A. Half Marathon®, Bermuda International Race Weekend, Falmouth Road Race, and New York City Marathon.®
