About Teams

Information on 2018 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk teams

Teams are the best way for a group of any size to participate in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk together. Form a team in honor of a loved one, or to represent a company, organization, school, or family. Walking with a team creates unity through fighting cancer, together.

TEAM UP WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS

Many Jimmy Fund Walk teams are a combination of family, friends, and communities who come together to make a difference. Teams often rally together in honor of a loved one to show their support.

The top 15 teams with the most participants will each receive a year supply of Cape Cod Chips!
See Official Contest Rules and Regulations.

Luke Lemberg, Team Captain of Boggsy's Squad, walks in memory of his brother Mark "Boggsy" Lemberg who bravely fought cancer for six years.
