Once again, Southborough runners are in training for the Boston Marathon. This year, 20 runners are assigned bibs. At least nine of them are using next Monday’s run to raise funds for worthy causes.

Below are the causes being supported, with links to the runners’ pages.

Three Southborough runners are registered with the Michael’s Miracles team this year:

The Michael Lisnow Respite Center
The center provides emotional and physical support for individuals with disabilities and their families.

Bay Cove’s team is supported by two Southborough runners:

Bay Cove Human Services, Inc.
The organization provides effective, compassionate care to individuals and families who face the challenges of developmental disabilities, mental illness, drug and alcohol addiction and aging at over 160 sites in Boston and southeastern Massachusetts.

Team John Hancock 2016
John Hancock employees to are raising funds that will be split equally between the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston and Ron Burton Training Village (guiding and mentoring young men in women in some of life’s most essential areas including: education, social skills, morals, values, leadership and fitness.)

The New England Center for Children
The Southborough based school provides education and individualized treatment for children with autism, pervasive developmental disorder, and Asperger’s Syndrome.

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Claudia Adams Barr Program in Innovative Basic Cancer Research
Based on a rigorous and highly selective process, the Barr Program funds the brightest, most creative scientists making basic research discoveries that are transforming cancer treatment.

Mass General Hospital’s Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Team
Funds raised are directed to cancer care and research initiatives that enhance the quality of life for the hospital’s youngest cancer patients.

(If you are running for a cause on Monday, and aren’t listed above, please post a comment with your fundraising link!)

Updated (4/11/16 3:24 pm): Fixed typo that had two runners supported by Bay Cove, instead of running in support!
