Run for Dana-Farber
Boston Marathon

Runner Fundraising Tools

Whether you run on an official Dana-Farber team or as a Dana-Farber runner in any race of your choice, we make it easy and fun for you to raise funds for our lifesaving mission!

Here's an at-a-glance guide to the helpful runner resources available via the website headquarters called "MyHQ."

  • The "MyHQ" tab - Your personal fundraising headquarters. Contains important fundraising tips, access to your list of donors, and at-a-glance updates on how your fundraising is going.
  • "Coach's Information" section - The go-to spot for fundraising guides and materials, important dates, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute facts, and other helpful information. Runners on our official teams will also find their training plan and associated tips in this section.
  • Personalized fundraising web page - This is the page your donors see when they support your fundraising. You can customize this page with a unique photo and your own text.
  • Run for Dana-Farber Facebook Fundraising App – This application will update your Facebook friends on your fundraising progress. It periodically posts updates to your Facebook page, giving your friends access to your personal fundraising web page in the days and months leading up to your race—providing a quick and easy way to support your run! Learn more about downloading the app.
  • Email center - We make it easy to tell everyone about your fundraising for Dana-Farber. Use this section to import email contacts and reach out to a large or select group at the same time.
  • Fundraising reports - The "Reports" tab lets you create and view customizable reports showing who has supported your fundraising, how much they gave, and contact information for thank you notes.
  • Bulletin board - Under the "Community" tab, you will find a bulletin board that lets you connect with other runners, and post questions.

And much more! Contact us for more information about the support our runners receive.
