John R. Svenson Classic committee members and family

Golf with us on October 4, 2021 to help conquer cancer

Honor the memory of John R. Svenson by golfing to support cancer genetics research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

ABOUT THE JOHN R. SVENSON CLASSIC

John R. Svenson The John R. Svenson Classic began in 2008 to honor John’s memory. His strength was remarkable as he bravely fought his yearlong battle with cancer. He was passionate and active in giving back to others, and John will be immortalized by the many people whose lives he touched.

As part of Jimmy Fund Golf presented by Mohegan Sun, the tournament has raised nearly $3.3 million to fund an endowment in John’s name, which funds a research fellowship at Dana-Farber in cancer genetics. This field holds great promise for developing more targeted and effective treatments for cancer. Our hope is that through your generous support of Dana-Farber, we will continue to move closer to the ultimate goal of finding a cure.
