The 26.2 with DONNA: The National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer has become a staple of the annual events calendar in Jacksonville for runners and spectators alike. Held each February in Jacksonville Beach since 2008, the marathon is dedicated to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer treatment and research.
Part of the marathon weekend is a health and fitness event, the DONNA Expo, at the Prime Osborn Convention Center, 1000 Water St., Jacksonville. The free expo is February 10 and 11 and includes breast cancer health information booths, fitness and running attire vendors, food and nutrition displays and more. UF Health Proton Therapy Institute will have a booth to distribute information about proton therapy for breast cancer. It is a great opportunity to spread the word about proton therapy and to support the cause to finish breast cancer.
