In 2004, the Jacksonville Galloway Training Program organized a team of runners to raise funds for The Donna Foundation while training for a marathon. This original team of about 85 runners were known as “Team DONNA.” Today, approximately 7,500 participants and supporters of DONNA events all over the world choose to fundraise each year. Team DONNA raised more than $425,000 in 2013, and we are asking all of you to join the team in 2014. Every penny of funds raised go to translational genomics breast cancer research at Mayo Clinic and to support the critical financial needs of those with breast cancer through The Donna Foundation.
Anyone can join Team DONNA – runners, cyclists, walkers, volunteers, spectators, small businesses and corporations.
Become a fundraiser today and let’s finish breast cancer together!
Here at 26.2 with DONNA, we are proud to say that our efforts have raised millions of dollars for bench top breast cancer research at the Mayo Clinic, and to fund the needs of under-served breast cancer patients through The Donna Foundation. Over the last several years, personal fundraising efforts reached an all time high and that meant we were able to move closer to the FINISH than ever before. We are thrilled to show you in tangible ways how much your efforts are helping. Updates on research and the numbers of patients helped come frequently so that you may see how your hard work pays off. Sometimes as we get closer to the finish line, the last miles can seem long, but there is nothing like the satisfaction of crossing that line, arms raised with a heart full of love and knowing we’ve accomplished something great. We are getting there. With your help, we will put and end to breast cancer. Please consider becoming a fund raiser or joining a fundraising team for 2014.
