As Prelude to the 1911-2011, 100th Anniversary of Alan Hovhaness and the 17 May, 2009, dedication of the Alan Hovhaness memorial in his home town of Arlington, Massachusetts, the Alan Hovhaness International Research Centre and the Cristofori Foundation mounted the "All Men are Brothers" memorial run. Pianist Martin Berkofsky started the run on 2 May, 2009, at the 3,165-foot summit of Mt. Monadnock, New Hampshire, a peak which Alan Hovhaness himself had scaled many times in his youth. The All Men are Brothers run successfully concluded on 13 May, 2009 at the Blossom Street Hovhaness/Chakmakjian Arlington, Massachusetts home. The All Men are Brothers run celebrates the universal humanitarian spirit of Hovhaness' Symphony No. 11-All Men are Brothers; Hovhaness' reverence for mountains which he saw as a meeting place between man and God, and a celebration of Hovhaness' father Haroutioun Chakmakjian, who walked as many as 15 miles a day in his later years.

Martin Berkofsky's last marathon/concert tour was in 2003 when he celebrated his 60th birthday and recovery from cancer.

CELEBRATE LIFE RUN

traversed 880 miles between Tulsa, Oklahoma and Chicago, Illinois, raising over $80,000.00 for cancer research.
