Patient Partner Program

The Hero Program sponsored by Arbella Insurance is the heart of the Jimmy Fund Walk! Jimmy Fund Walk Heroes are Dana-Farber Cancer Institute patients who volunteer to share their stories and inspire walkers to walk and raise critical funds for cancer research and patient care.

Hero Match Teams

Inspire your team and request to be matched with a Hero. Once matched, your team will walk and fundraise in your Hero’s honor.

All Jimmy Fund Walk Hero Match Teams must register and submit an interest form before being matched with a Hero. The Team Captain or Co-Captain should complete this form. All forms will be reviewed and match teams will be notified in Summer 2022.
