“When I moved to Massachusetts, I discovered a welcoming environment of staff and fellow volunteers with the Jimmy Fund. I soon started volunteering for the Boston Marathon® and the Jimmy Fund Walk. In 2020, I became a participant in the virtual Jimmy Fund Walk. In doing so, I recruited family members to join my then team of one. It was so rewarding to be virtually connected with family while supporting the Jimmy Fund’s quest to find a cure.”
