Despite snow on the track and a lingering winter bite to the air, runners turned out on April 2 and 3 to support a fundraising effort to benefit the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

By Sunday afternoon, Kathy Wilson, of Camden, had raised $8,000 during the 26.2 hour relay challenge, with  runners taking to the Camden Hills Regional High School outdoor track in Rockport.

The event began on April 2 at 9:30 a.m. and finished with Wilson’s portion of the run on April 3 at 12:42 p.m.

The 115th annual Boston Marathon is Monday, April 18. Under the moniker of “one relay, one team, one cause,” Wilson is a qualified entrant in the Boston Marathon and a member of the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge Team. All money she raises will fund Dana-Farber’s Claudia Adams Barr Program in cancer research.

For more than 60 years, the institute and its researchers have come to the rescue, accelerating the pace of discovery and the search for cures.

For more information or to donate, e-mail Eric Kangas at ekangas@kangascpas.com or mail him at 1 Country Way, Camden, ME 04843. Also write to Wilson at P.O. Box 1383, Camden, Maine 04843.
