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 Neuro Oncology Department at DFCI cared for our family when we needed it most; now we walk & fundraise to support all the families who have come after us. Registering as a Virtual Walker allows me to participate & fundraise while staying close to home. It's a wonderful option for someone who doesn't live close to Boston!”
