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 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.
Kim Salley has participated in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk for the past 12 years. Kim and her team walk in memory of her grandfather, Harold “Bucky” Rogers. In 2016, Kim and her husband were Virtual Walkers due to the arrival of their son, Jimmy.
“Because of our little Jimmy’s arrival, Team Bucky Rogers was not able to physically participate. Our team has always vowed to raise awareness and monetary support for the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber, so we continued the tradition as virtual walk participants so that our Jimmy, current Jimmys, and future Jimmys can see a world without cancer!”
