CELEBRATING TWO ANNIVERSARIES 1978 RUN ACROSS AMERICA AND 30TH BOSTON MARATHON JIMMY FUND WALK

In 1978, I ran 3,452 miles across the United States from Medford, OR to Medford, MA to benefit the Jimmy Fund of Boston, the fundraising arm of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  I finished that run on August 29th by running into and around Fenway Park before a Red Sox game in front of 32,000 fans.  Runner’s World claimed that this was one of the very first times someone combined running with fundraising for cancer research.  On August 23, 2018, almost 40-years later, I ceremonially ran into Fenway Park again in celebration of my 1978 finish.  Ten years after my 1978 run, I helped create the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, a multi-distance walk along the famed Boston Marathon course to benefit the Jimmy Fund.  On September 23rd, I will be participating myself in the 30th anniversary of the BMJFW with many other family members.    Between the 40th anniversary of my run and the 30th anniversary of the walk, I am hoping to raise $100,000 for the Jimmy Fund.  When you make a gift, you are directly supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge science and highly compassionate cancer care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.

In advance, thank you for considering supporting the 40th anniversary of my run as well as my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk!
