About M.O.M.'s Run
Mary (Pilotte) O'Brien, who was a longtime Somerville resident, lost her brief battle to cancer on November 19th, 2002. Mary was involved in many local organizations throughout her life, and dedicated much of her time to helping others. We hope that you will join us at this community event to honor the amazing mothers and women, and countless others that have been affected by cancer in each of our lives.
A full 100% of the funds raised by M.O.M.'s Run benefits the Claudia Adams Barr Program in Innovative Basic Cancer Research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, widely recognized as one of the largest and most successful programs of its kind.
