Patient-Runner Connection

The Patient-Runner Connection (PRC) teams up a liver patient, survivor, or family with a runner on the American Liver Foundation Marathon Team, participating in the Boston Marathon®.

Are you or someone you know affected by liver disease?

  • Share your story with your runner, at a long run, or on our website to motivate.
  • The American Liver Foundation's Marathon Team is the oldest charity partnership with the Boston Marathon®.
  • Through our Patient Runner Connection, we will pair you with a member of the ALF's Marathon Team who will train and run the Boston Marathon® in your honor.
  • You and your runner will form a team to inspire one another to reach your individual goals.
  • Take part in marathon activities in a highly unique and meaningful way.
  • Meet your runner and other people affected by liver disease at social events throughout the season.
  • Put a face to the cause! Challenge people to think again about liver disease.
