About DONNA 110
DONNA 110 is an official event of 26.2 with DONNA The National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer. 26.2 with DONNA is a private non-profit organization in Northeast Florida producing the only marathon (and Ultra Marathon) in the U.S. dedicated solely to raising funds to end breast cancer. Net proceeds for all 26.2 with DONNA events go to breast cancer research and care. Funds from DONNA helped to develop and maintain the Mayo Clinic Breast Cancer Translational Genomics Program. These funds make it possible for the laboratory team not only to conduct state of the art breast cancer research, including the widely publicized Triple Negative Breast Cancer Vaccine Trials, but also provide genomics support for studies in all cancers. Funds also support The Donna Foundation, providing financial assistance for the critical needs of more than 8,000 women and men living with breast cancer.
DONNA Marathon Weekend is held annually on the second weekend in February and attracts runners and supporters from all 50 states and 20 countries. In 2012, five individuals and two relay teams inspired by the 110% Play Harder Challenge ran 110 miles and raised more than $115K. The Challenge continues each year with the DONNA 110 - now an official event of DONNA Marathon Weekend.
