Brian and brother Andrew James after running the October 8, 2017, Chicago Marathon

Brian d’Arcy James took on the 26.2-mile-long challenge of the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 8 and raised money to support cancer patients and their loved ones served by the Cancer Support Community.

“Like most everyone, my life is touched by cancer. My father Tom James died of cancer at age 50 and my cousin Tom is currently fighting cancer,” said James. “This is why my brother Andrew and I ran the Chicago Marathon under the banner of TEAM TOM to benefit the Cancer Support Community. What makes CSC so wonderful to me is the wide approach they take to not only support patients who are dealing with diagnoses, but also the friends and family around them who are as well.”

All funds raised went to benefit the Cancer Support Community.
