Harpoon Dogtoberfest

Donation Goal: $50,000

Harpoon Dogtoberfest supports two wonderful charities. The Kenary Brain Tumor Research Fund at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and MSPCA-Angell.


The Kenary Brain Tumor Research Fund at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Our Founder & CEO, Dan Kenary, started this research fund in memory of the members of his family that have been affected by glioblastomas, a particularly malignant brain tumor. In 2007, Kenary’s brother, Jim, was diagnosed with glioblastoma and referred to Patrick Wen, MD, director of the Center for Neuro-Oncology. Dr. Wen provided his care before Jim unfortunately passed away from the disease. In 2011, Kenary’s mother, Maryanne, was also diagnosed with a glioblastoma and unfortunately there wasn't much of a treatment plan at that point. Dr. Wen was able to show his compassion and skill with her as well through the treatments. Learn more about the history that the Kenary family and Harpoon have with Dana-Farber and how intertwined they have become over the years though this blog post.
