A Welcome from Donna Deegan
Hello Everyone! Welcome to the island!
Our 12th annual DONNA Marathon Weekend is going to be the best yet and I’m so glad you’re here for it!
The start/finish line has moved to the social center of our beaches universe: The Beaches Town Center, where Neptune and Atlantic Beach come together. For those of you who have run with us before, this jewel was previously experienced by our full marathon runners only. Now all of our participants will have the chance to see all that our northern beaches have to offer, including those crazy radicals on Ocean Boulevard!
Our full marathon course still winds all the way through our southern beaches as well, and the gorgeous oak-lined neighborhoods of St. Johns County.
While our course may have changed a bit, our mission at The DONNA Foundation remains the same. With your help we will continue our efforts to finish breast cancer, by helping those living with the disease with financial assistance and patient navigation, and through ground breaking research at Mayo Clinic.
So let’s lace up and have some fun knowing we are doing good in the process.
Thank you all and have a great run!
Chief Eternal Optimist (CEO), The DONNA Foundation
