2023 Maine Marathon, Half Marathon, Relay, and Virtual Race with the Marr Fund Team

Gratefully Dead Legs

On October 1, the Marr Fund Team will participate in the 2023 Maine Marathon.  Participants can run or walk– virtually or in person to support the Josephine and John Marr Alzheimer’s Research Fund at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Established by the Marr family, the fund directly supports novel and early-stage research aimed at preventing Alzheimer’s disease.

We now know that Alzheimer’s begins 20 years or more before the onset of symptoms.  The Marr family – together with world-renowned researchers at the Brigham – are focused on finding a way to stop Alzheimer’s disease altogether. Backed by more than 30 years of research, Dr. Reisa Sperling and her team are pioneering innovative approaches to advance the prevention and treatment of this devasting disease, including world-wide prevention clinical trials.

In nine years, the Marr Fund team has already made a great impact on furthering Alzheimer’s prevention research, most notably raising $1.9 million through the Maine Marathon event and serving as a catalyst for many millions in additional support.

Thank you for joining us in this fight to prevent Alzheimer’s.  Together we can make a difference – now and for future generations.
