A Carlisle man will run the Boston Marathon to raise money for cancer research.

Kenneth Shur is part of the 500-member Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge team that seeks to raise $6 million for research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

This year marks the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge team’s 30th annual running in the Boston Marathon. One hundred percent of the money raised by DFMC goes to Dana-Farber’s Claudia Adams Barr Program in Innovative Basic Cancer Research that supports research in its earliest stages. The Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge has raised nearly $93 million to date.

Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge runners include cancer survivors and patients, and family and friends of those who have been affected by cancer. Each team member must fulfill a basic fundraising commitment.

To contribute to the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge, visit RunDFMC.org or contact the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge office at (617) 632-1970 or dfmc@dfci.harvard.edu. Follow DFMC on Facebook:www.facebook/marathonchallenge. On Twitter: #RunDFMC.
