We are very thankful to be a John Hancock charity partner for our 2nd year. We maintain 2 bibs through this program as we did in 2013. We have added 3 more marathoners to the team, 2 running Boston and 1 running Providence. We welcome you to donate to any member of Team GDMF. Be sure to click on the links below and learn more about their personal ties to the foundation and their reasons for running.

Sean Lake - GDMF board member, Sean Lake welcomes the challenge to tackle his 1st marathon ever at one of the toughest courses out there.
Heather Ford Heather is Sean's multi-marathoner bride to be. She has completed 9 marathons to date with the goal of completing 1 in every state. This is Heather's 1st Boston.    Follow Heather's Journey on Fox 5 San Diego HERE!

Kristin Donahue Our Team GDMF organizer is thrilled to be back in 2014. She will be missing her running partner and husband, Tom, who gave his knee to the cause after finishing in 2013.
Paul Donahue Paul is an avid runner and was instrumental in the execution of the 1st Annual Glen Doherty Memorial Road Race in Winchester last fall. This is Paul's 3rd showing in Boston.
Brooke Gaigner – Brooke is a Coast Guard spouse with many ½ marathons under her belt. She is honored to represent Team GDMF in her first marathon at Boston.

**Please note, that our 3 John Hancock bibs with Sean, Heather & Brooke have a $5,000 minimum commitment. The rest of us have goals that are personal in nature and do not require a minimum.**

If you have a number for Boston, or may know qualified runners with a bib, please consider joining us!

We are very thankful to be a John Hancock partner for our 2nd year.  We maintain 2 bibs as we did in 2013.  GDMF board member, Sean Lake and his multi-marathoner bride to be, Heather Ford will be representing Team GMDF on April 21st. If you have a number for Boston, or may know qualified runners with a bib, please consider joining our team!  We will set you up on our fundraising platform, require a lower minimum and provide a GDMF T-shirt.  Whether you raise $500 or $5,000 we would love to strengthen our numbers and show John Hancock that we are team for Boston this year and in many years to come.  We would love to have you as part of Boston Team GDMF!


An alternative to running Boston, would be to join Team GDMF for the Cox Providence, RI marathon OR half marathon.  Providence will run Sunday, May 4th just two weeks after Boston. Providence is a flatter course and a good option if you want to try and quality for Boston 2015.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our 2014 teams and events.  Thank you for your support of the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation.  With your help we continue to raise funds for special operations soldiers and their families through the active pursuits that Glen loved.
