Uzo Aduba has yet to hear the starting gun for the Boston Marathon, but she’s ahead of the game in her fundraising for the race!
The “Orange Is The New Black” star is hoping to promote cancer research as she runs for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute on April 20. So far, she’s already drummed up $4,000, but the memory of losing loved ones–while fighting to keep others alive–is what’s fueling her in the 26.2-mile race.
“When I ran New York, there were four people in my life — one had passed, and three were battling cancer,” she told the Associated Press.”Now, today, there’s only one still fighting.”
Uzo added, “They ran a race much harder than mine.”
