Davina McNaney

Surviving in Stride.

Runner. Ultra Marathoner. Mom. Crusader.

“I didn’t like when people looked at me like I was sick or weak when I was diagnosed, so I decided to do something about it,” said breast cancer survivor Daveny McNaney. Three months after surgery following her diagnosis in 2012, the mother, now 44 years old, started running again — first in a 5K and then in the Detroit half-marathon. And, eventually she got back to full marathons and more. Now she runs more than 1,300 miles a year to raise money for breast cancer research.

Earlier this month, she completed her second cross-state run for breast cancer research, going 380 miles over 12 days from Massachusetts to New York. (Three years ago, she ran 470 miles from Michigan to New York to raise funds for breast cancer research.)
