The following was submitted by Michael McDonough, of Arlington.
Name: Michael McDonough
Goal: To simply enjoy Marathon Monday as much as I can, while finishing of course :)
Reason for running: There are dozens of reasons, but among these is I'm running to directly raise money to fund cancer research through Dana-Farber. I'm running to bring a healthy tomorrow to cancer patients in our region and across the world. I'm running to challenge myself in new ways. I'm running to celebrate our amazing city and this amazing event. It will truly be a special day, and I'm not only incredibly honored to be part of it, but also to be doing it for a remarkable cause.
