Our patients are the heart of the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai is sponsored by Boston 25. They inspire us to walk and raise critical funds for cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber. They are our Heroes. This year, even as we walk apart, the stories of our Heroes connect us and fuel our fight against cancer.
Meet our Heroes below.
Inspire your team and request to be matched with a Hero. Our Heroes need your support now more than ever. Once matched, your team will walk and fundraise in your Hero’s honor.
All Jimmy Fund Walk Hero Match Teams must register and submit an interest form before being matched with a Hero. The Team Captain or Co-Captain should complete this form. All forms will be reviewed and match teams will be notified in Summer 2020.

"As a 9-year survivor of Glioblastoma Multiforme, I have known struggles and set-backs, as well as many successes. Through it all, my Wellness Team at Dana-Farber has been by my side. I could not have come this far without them. My name is Charlie and I am Jimmy!"

"I love my nurses and doctors at the Jimmy Fund Clinic going there is so much fun! When I grow up, I want to work at Hasbro and make Transformers BotBots."

"If it wasn’t for everyone associated with Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund Clinic, the last eighteen months of treatment would be much more stressful. They have all become very helpful neighbors in our new neighborhood. We sooo appreciate them!"
Read Peter's Quote
"When I think of the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber I am always reminded of the selflessness and caring of the staff and doctors. Because of their work I have been feeling well and enjoying new hobbies: reading, puzzles, and working on learning a new language."
