DONNA Foundation’s Signature Event Wins USA Today 10Best Readers Choice Award

Half-marathon To Finish Breast Cancer voted #4 in the country


The DONNA Foundation was recently bestowed the honor of being included in USA Today’s 10Best Readers Choice Awards. The DONNA National Half-marathon To Finish Breast Cancer, part of the foundation’s annual DONNA Marathon Weekend programming, was chosen as the number four best half marathon in the country.

As part of a nationwide search for the best half marathons, USA Today 10Best editors and a panel of expert runners compiled a list of their top events, then opened the category up to USA Today readers who would vote for their favorites and determine the winners. Voting opened February 26 and ran through March 25. The DONNA half-marathon distance will tout the honor for a year before the contest is opened for 2025.

The 18th Annual DONNA Marathon Weekend, which includes the award-winning half marathon distance, is planned for January 31 – February 2, 2025; registration opens Summer 2024.
