2023 Boston Marathon Highlights
Congratulations and thank you to Expect Miracles Foundation’s four 2023 Boston Marathon runners. Together, Frank Heavey, Madeline Forrester, James Kraunelis, and Phil Schachter raised over $55K for our life-saving and life-changing mission. We are grateful for their incredible commitment and effort to run 26.2 miles and the impact they have had on the cancer community!
Meet the EMF Runners
“I’m excited to be running the Boston Marathon, a historic event that is associated with equality in sports. I’m choosing to take on this challenge, but cancer is a huge challenge that people don’t choose. Having seen friends and family struggle, I’m delighted to be running to support Expect Miracles Foundation’s life-saving and life-changing mission.”
“I am running the Boston Marathon for all those in my life that have been affected by cancer. I am running to be one small part in the fight against it and proudly support the mission of Expect Miracles Foundation.”
“The Boston Marathon is the ultimate race for all runners, whether you’re a first-timer or a 5-time Marathon Finisher like me (4 NYC, 1 Chicago). Our family has been affected by this awful disease (losing my Dad at 47, the same age I am now.) I fundraise for every marathon I run, and Boston is the perfect challenge for me!”
“I know what hope means for a family facing cancer. I’m running the Boston Marathon to raise critical funds for EMF’s cancer research funds and for EMF’s SAMFund grant program which provides financial assistance for young adult cancer survivors. I’m running so that others may have hope.”
