Busy on Walk Day? Become a Virtual Walker, and stay involved in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai. Virtual Walkers are fundraisers who cannot attend Walk Day, and still want to fundraise for Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund. Many Virtual Walkers choose to host their own walks with family and friends.
Virtual Walkers 13 or older on Walk Day have a fundraising minimum of $100, which includes the $5 registration fee. Those 12 or younger on Walk day have a fundraising minimum of $25, which includes the $5 registration fee. All Virtual Walkers who reach their minimum will receive a Jimmy Fund hat in the mail.
Virtual Walkers who raise $325 or more (or $125 or more if you are 12 or younger) will receive a Jimmy Fund Walk T-shirt and medal in the mail.

“I have participated in the Jimmy Fund Walk since 2007 to raise awareness for pediatric cancers and in support of the Pediatric Advanced Care Team (PACT). I also walk in memory of my cousin George and my husband's aunt, CeCe. Even though I could not be in Boston for the actual Walk last year, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to make an impact as a virtual walker.”
