Brian d'Arcy James runs for CSC

All proceeds from his Chicago Marathon fundraiser will be donated to the Cancer Support Community

On October 8th, 2017, actor and singer Brian d'Arcy James ran 26.2 miles at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, so that no one faces cancer alone.

All money donated from his fundraiser will come back to CSC.

Brian d'Arcy James of Netflix's 13 Reasons Why, the 2015 Best Picture Oscar winner Spotlight, and the Tony Award-Winning play Hamilton, competed for a purpose to support those impacted by cancer everywhere.

James ran under his "Team Tom" banner in honor of his cousin and father. James' father passed away from cancer in 1990, and James' cousin continues his fight with cancer to this day. Brian has been a lovely supporter of the Cancer Support Community!

Please email Lauren Ballantoni or Charley Hart for any questions.
