The Young Adult Program’s Fitness Fundraiser
The Young Adult Program (YAP) Walk team knows how to fight cancer head on—starting with a mean right hook! Having raised tens of thousands of dollars since 2011 to support the Young Adult Program at Dana-Farber, the team is comprised of Dana-Farber faculty and staff, current and former patients, and friends, family, and supporters. Last year, the team held a fitness fundraiser at a local boxing gym to help raise funds to hit their goal.
