Coordinated by the American Liver Foundation, the Liver Life Challenge (LLC) is an endurance event training program that promotes awareness of liver disease and raises money to fund critical liver research. By collecting contributions from friends, family, colleagues and others, athletes earn the privilege to compete in some of the country’s most prestigious marathons, road races, climbs and other exciting events.
LLC athletes receive training assistance, professional fundraising advice and team gear as well as the rewarding experience of helping those affected by liver related illnesses while accomplishing their own personal goals.
The American Liver Foundation has teamed up with athletes of all levels since 1988 when our first team trained for the Boston Marathon while raising funds in honor of Evan O’Reilly, son of Boston Bruins legend, Terry O’Reilly. Known as Run for Research, the team has grown to become one of the largest official charity teams of the Boston Marathon and has raised over $13 million to support the ALF mission.
Successful teams have also represented ALF in events such as the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and the Liver Life Challenge Mt. Shasta Climb. Today we are launching Liver Life Challenge event teams all over the country for athletes of every level who will train together while helping the 30 million Americans fighting liver disease.
