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 $330 or more (or $130 or more if you are 12 or younger) will receive a Jimmy Fund Walk T-shirt and medal in the mail.
Jerome walked a full marathon in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Walk Day!
“The physical demand was taxing, but as I walked, I had a lot of time to reflect on why and who I was walking for and reminded myself that this was nothing in comparison to what patients have to endure on a daily basis. I walked for my niece Olivia who recently fought and beat Anaplastic Ependymoma. Even though I couldn’t be there on Walk Day, I wanted to participate in the walk to show my solidarity to my niece and all pediatric patients.”
