Miles for Mary helps raise awareness of the effects of brain cancer in our community and generates funds to support brain cancer research at Massachusetts General Hospital in memory of Mary Park. In 2012, the Park family lost Mary, their wife and mother, to brain cancer. For the past five years family and friends have gathered around Miles for Mary as a tribute to her memory and the memory of a growing number of members in the North Shore Community afflicted by this terrible disease. Mary was passionate about her family and friends throughout her active and vibrant life and these gatherings help lift the spirits of her friends and family in her memory.
All of the funds raised through Miles for Mary directly benefit brain cancer research at Massachusetts General Hospital.
