Two Watertown Residents Will Take on Dana Farber's Half Marathon

The 12th annual B.A.A. Half Marathon will be run in Boston on Oct. 7 and supports the adult and pediatric cancer care research at Dana-Farber.

The following information was provided by the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute:

On Oct. 7, Curtis Hazlett and Lindsay Mosca of Watertown, will be running in the 12th annual B.A.A. Half Marathon presented by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund, as members of the official Dana-Farber team.

Each of the nearly 500 Dana-Farber team members are committed to raising at least $500 to support adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber. Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund have partnered with the B.A.A. in the half marathon for ten years. During this time, runners on the Dana-Farber team have raised more than $3 million to fuel lifesaving discoveries. To support a runner in the B.A.A.

“Each year, our Dana-Farber runners take part in the B.A.A. Half Marathon not only for the personal, physical challenge, but because they know they are making a difference by raising crucial funds to support the global fight against cancer,” says Jack Fultz, Dana-Farber’s training advisor and 1976 Boston Marathon men’s champion.

The 13.1-mile rolling course is an out-and-back loop that runs along the Emerald Necklace park system. It will begin and end in White Stadium in Boston’s Franklin Park. The event attracts a field of 7,000 runners, including world-class athletes.

The B.A.A. Half Marathon is one of three annual events that connect the Boston Athletic Association and Dana-Farber. The Boston MarathonJimmy Fund Walk is the only walk sanctioned to take place along the historic Boston Marathon route and the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge (DFMC) includes a team of Dana-Farber runners who participate in the Boston Marathon each April.
