Patient-Runner Connection

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

Through frequent communication between patient and runner, patients and family members are able to inspire our endurance participants and spread awareness about their specific liver disease. As part of the program, liver patients, survivors and families will have the opportunity to connect at team meetings, training runs, quarterly socials and on marathon weekend.

Benefits of the Program

  • Inspire 1 or 175 runners by sharing your story at a team meeting, long run or on the RFR website
  • Meet and cheer on the team at social events, our patient runner connection party, a pre-marathon brunch, and, of course, on race day!
  • Challenge people to “Think Again” about liver disease, by putting a face to the cause
  • Form a friendship that will last for years to come
  • Help fundraise for important research being done for the prevention, treatment, and cure of liver disease
