WHAT IS A JIMMY FUNDRAISER?
Jimmy Fundraisers are our generous group of grassroots supporters who host fundraising events on behalf of Dana-Farber. Thanks to our Jimmy Fundraisers we have made huge progress against cancer, giving more “Jimmys” a hopeful future. Every step walked or race run, each mile on a bike or swing of the club, every ice cream scooped, video game played, auction held, and donation made makes an impact on the life of Dana-Farber patients and families. Every event and every dollar given makes a powerful difference because it’s not a single act—it’s part of a movement, and an entire community of supporters. Together, we’re all Jimmy.
