Dan Brown, “Danny” to his friends, was a much loved and respected teacher and track coach at both Bishop Kenny and John J. Snyder High Schools in Jacksonville, Florida. He made character the cornerstone for all he did on and off the track.  He loved each of the kids he coached like they were his own.  He brought out the best in everyone he touched.  The National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer is honored to name our High School Challenge in honor of Danny Brown.  The Danny Brown cup will be bestowed on the fasted high school relay team to enter the race.
