Bob is an individual walker that has been participating in the Jimmy Fund Walk since 1995!
“Every year when I leave Hopkinton, I’m thankful for my healthy daughters and grandchildren. The Walk allows me to to raise funds that will ultimately help find a cure for all cancers so that all parents and grandparents will be as lucky as me. When I see all the Walk Heroes, see their ages and read their dreams, I know what I’m doing with help from my sponsors is right.”
