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 where you stand.

FEATURED JIMMY FUND WALK TEAM

Karen Cruz and her husband started Cruzin' for Rylie Hope in memory of their daughter, Rylie, who bravely battled cancer for sixteen months.

“While our team was started in Rylie's memory, it has grown to be much more. Our team is made up of family and friends who walk in honor or in memory of loved ones battling, or have lost their battle to cancer. We look forward to it each year and take great pride in raising awareness, funds, and actively doing something to contribute to a cure, so that no family has to go through the pain that we have.”

CORPORATE TEAMS

Many companies and organizations start a team or sponsor the Jimmy Fund Walk through a financial or in-kind contribution. The Jimmy Fund staff is available to offer guidance and provide resources every step of the way. Contact Samantha Rose, Corporate Teams Coordinator, to learn more.
