Rob Auger
Boston Marathon, April 2018
Rob is running the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boston in honor of his late father-in-law, Don Lee, and his mother-in-law Janet, a cancer survivor. In his words, "All in all, Dana Farber has given my family hope. Hope that a shattering diagnosis can be improved, hope that eventually a cure can prevent other families from suffering, and hope that life can still be enjoyable after loss."

A fierce advocate for animal adoption, Sandra has been volunteering at the shelter for 8 years, has been on the Board for three (chairing the Development Committee), fostered numerous cats and dogs, and, most importantly, she adopted five of her six pets from Baypath.
