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.
Kevin Thibdeau and his family started walking in the Jimmy Fund Walk after their seven-month old daughter was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma.
“We started walking as we wanted to try and give back for all the help we were given. We continue to walk and our daughter is now 26! Ironically, I am also now a patient at Dana-Farber. I haven't been able to walk the last two years, so we virtually walk to continue the tradition.”
