The Boston Marathon is in two weeks and thousands of runners will go the 26.2 miles for a variety of reasons.35 Year old Tom Henaghen of Hampden will cover the course as a member of the Dana Farber Marathon Challenge team.Seven years ago he lost his father to cancer, and last summer his mother lost her battle with the disease.So now he’s running to raise money for cancer research.” My story of having lost two parents to cancer is not some rare story it’s all too common the training and just going through with it keeps my parents memory in the forefront of my mind”Tom is still raising funds, and has raised a little more than eleven thousand dollars so far.You can contribute to him by e-mailing him at [email protected] or you can go to the website HTTP://WWW.rundfmc.org/tomh to contribute directly.The Boston Marathon is Monday April 19th.
