Dana Farber unveils 2014 Boston Marathon racing singlet
BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- The 700 members of this year's Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge team will be running in specially designed racing singlets come April.
This year is the first year after the Boston Marathon bombings, so the singlet pays tribute to the 2013 Boston Marathon with its color scheme, and also puts the Boston city skyline along the sides, designed to "give each teammate a symbolic 'hug' as they return to the storied race," a statement from the cancer center read.
2014 also marks Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's 25th year participating in the marathon. Runners for the team raise money for the Claudia Adams Barr Program, which funds cancer research.
