Show Your Connection

Though we are united in purpose—to save and change lives, we each walk for different reasons and with different connections to the cause. View the 2020 digital Ribbon Wall, brought to you by Lilly, to see the connections and reasons for walking from 2020 walkers.

Learn About Our Heroes

Our patients are our Heroes. They inspire us to walk and raise critical funds for cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber. Traditionally you see our Walk Heroes along the route but this year, as we walk apart, their stories still serve as inspiration and bring us together. Stay tuned to meet our 2021 Heroes and contact Amy Lusa if you know someone who would make a great Jimmy Fund Walk Hero!
