Busy on Walk Day? Become a Virtual Walker, and stay involved in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai. Virtual Walkers are fundraisers who cannot attend Walk Day, but still want to fundraise for Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund. Many Virtual Walkers choose to host their own walks with family and friends.
There is a $5 registration fee and participants will receive a Jimmy Fund hat. Virtual Walkers 13 or older on Walk Day have a fundraising minimum of $100, which includes the $5 registration fee. Those 12 or younger on Walk day have a fundraising minimum of $25, which includes the $5 registration fee.
Virtual Walkers who raise $325 or more (or $125 or more if you are 12 or younger) will receive a Jimmy Fund Walk T-shirt and medal in the mail.

“The outlook was ominous, however, thanks to Dana-Farber, I just celebrated my 40th birthday. There are no better medical professionals than the doctors, nurses, and staff working for the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber. Now is my time to give back and help other patients become cancer survivors.”
