Jacksonville native, journalist and philanthropist Donna Deegan founded the first U.S. marathon dedicated to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer treatment and research. Held each February in Jacksonville Beach since 2008, the 26.2 with Donna: The National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer has become a staple of the annual events calendar for runners and spectators alike. 

UF Health Proton Therapy Institute participated in the Donna Expo at the Prime Osborn Convention Center in downtown Jacksonville on February 12 and 13. Volunteers from the Institute’s staff distributed information about proton therapy for breast cancer treatment. It was a great opportunity to spread the word about proton therapy and to support the cause to finish breast cancer.
