Meet Christina Caturano Ryan!

When Christina was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 at the age of 39, she was nine weeks pregnant with her second child. As a fighter, she immediately felt the need to do something significant to raise funds for breast cancer awareness. She then paused after the realization of this diagnosis, and found that her priority, regardless of what happened on her life's path, was to leave this world a better place because her two children, your children, and all of our communities deserve improvement.

Christina is unstoppable in her mission to run the marathon for and support The Lenny Zakim Fund in fighting inequality and raising people up at the community level so we can all benefit from positive change. Christina also appreciates the Zakim Fund’s support and involvement with several of their grantees that help women who have battled breast cancer. Christina twice ran the Boston Marathon for the Pine Street Inn. In addition to running, Christina enjoys yoga, cooking, reading, and writing, and is a Parent Teacher Group blogger.
