TEAM UP WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Many Jimmy Fund Walk teams are a combination of family, friends, and communities who come together against cancer to make a difference. Teams often rally together in honor of a loved one to show their support.
FEATURED JIMMY FUND WALK TEAM
Optimus Caron began walking in honor of Michael, a pediatric patient at Dana-Farber.
“The Jimmy Fund Walk is our opportunity to give back to an organization that helped save our son Michael's life, and also a way to pay it forward to families who will need support after us. In 2019, Michael was undergoing treatment, so we pushed him a majority of the way in a stroller. In 2022, Michael is ready to return to the course and walk as a healthy 8 year old, thanks to the Jimmy Fund.”
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 Stephanie Dolliver to learn more.

FEATURED JIMMY FUND WALK CORPORATE TEAM
Team Long's is very excited to head back to the course this fall!
“The owners of Longs, Bob, Craig, and Judd Rottenberg, have been involved with the Jimmy Fund Walk for many years, first as an event sponsor and then also as generous supporters. Over the years we have loved the Walk for the mission and the camaraderie it brings to all of us who walk, volunteer, or donate. Many of us have had family and friends who have lived with or have passed on from cancer and it is empowering to know we can make a difference!”

Steve is the Assistant Vice President, Digital Marketing in the Division of Philanthropy, and longtime Team Captain of Giant Steps.
“I’ve done the Walk with my daughters for the past 10 years as team Giant Steps. Last year we walked for my nephew Will, a student at Endicott College who was being treated at Dana-Farber for non-Hodgkin lymphoma. I’m happy to say that he was declared cancer free in October and is graduating this year. That’s why we walk!”
