John & Jill Lifrack

From: Rehoboth, MA

What I do for a living: Joe is an orthopedic surgeon specializing In knees in South Eastern Massachusetts and I am is a registered nurse.

Why I choose to run Boston with Herren Project:
We chose to run the Boston Marathon with the Herren Project not only because it’s an amazing cause but we are running it in memory of our nephew Michael Poland. Michael lost his life to a drug overdose on February 11, 2020. We come from a very tight-knit family, so words could never quite express the devastation that it caused. There isn’t a day that goes by that he is not thought of, talked to, or prayed for. The goal is to break the stigma of addiction, and to let others be aware that there is so much help out there and people who really care.

What I do for fun (besides running and helping others!):
Besides running, We enjoy skiing, going to the beach, and spending time with our kids and dogs.

What I’m most proud of:
If we could only choose one thing to be most proud of I would have to say that it is our family. Our 3 boys -Joe 22, Jake 19 and Jackson 18.
