Volunteers from Massachusetts HOBY have been volunteering at the Finish Line of the Jimmy Fund Walk for the past 12 years. Andres Tejada, Massachusetts HOBY Alumni Advisor states:

“I volunteer each year because it's important to always give back and it's A LOT OF FUN! If every person can do one thing, small or big, those acts come together to make a difference. The Walk helps to fight cancer one step at a time and we take that to heart by volunteering each year.”
