TeamAICR members come from all over the country, and from all walks of life, but they all have one thing in common: a deep commitment to ending cancer. Many of our members have personally been affected by cancer and it has made a lasting impact on their lives. By joining TeamAICR, you're not just running a race, you're taking action and working toward a cancer-free future.

"I really enjoy working with charity runners – they have such inspirati onal stories of why they are taking on the challenge of a marathon. When looked at as a whole, training for a marathon can seem overwhelming. I take a simplistic approach – one day at a time, one foot in front of the other until you reach the finish line. I am really looking forward to once again working with TeamAICR athletes and welcome any and all questions!"
