Many Jimmy Fund Walk teams are a combination of family, friends, and communities who come together to make a difference. Teams often rally together in honor of a loved one to show their support.
Many companies and organizations start a team or sponsor the Jimmy Fund Walk through a financial or in-kind contribution. The Jimmy Fund staff is available to offer guidance and provide resources every step of the way. Contact Samantha Rose, Corporate Teams Coordinator, to learn more.

Vantage Partners has been a Corporate Walk team since 2016 and has raised over $35,000 for the Jimmy Fund Walk!
“In 2016 we walked to support our colleague Melissa and her son Luke. We continue to walk for our family, friends, and co-workers who have battled and continue to battle cancer.”
Work together, walk together. All Dana-Farber employees are encouraged to walk or volunteer, and participate alongside our courageous patients and their families. All employee walkers and volunteers will be invited to events throughout the year and will receive a special patch to wear on Walk day.

“I’ve walked with my daughters since I started working at Dana-Farber & the Jimmy Fund in 2012. It’s been a great way to get closer to our mission, experience one of our awesome fundraising events, and teach them the importance of giving. Nina has donated her birthday to Walk fundraising and raised money at lemonade stands!”
