Since 1988, the Run For Research marathon program has made a dramatic impact on the American Liver Foundation's mission -- to prevent, treat and cure the over 100 types of liver disease through research, education and advocacy. Last year's team raised over $1.1 million. Team members receive a comprehensive training program presented by fitness professionals for runners of all levels, informative team meetings and fun social events, weekly group runs, two long runs on the marathon course, team clothing, luxury buses to the start line, and complimentary massages and snacks post-race. To help runners excel in raising funds, the American Liver Foundation also provides fundraising tips, resources and supplies. This marathon season the American Liver Foundation will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Run For Research team, making this an exciting year to run with us!
