Busy on Walk Day? Become a Virtual Walker, and stay involved in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai. Virtual Walkers are fundraisers who cannot attend Walk Day, and still want to fundraise for Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund. Many Virtual Walkers choose to host their own walks with family and friends.
Virtual Walkers 13 or older on Walk Day have a fundraising minimum of $100, which includes the $5 registration fee. Those 12 or younger on Walk day have a fundraising minimum of $25, which includes the $5 registration fee. All Virtual Walkers who reach their minimum will receive a Jimmy Fund hat in the mail.
Virtual Walkers who raise $325 or more (or $125 or more if you are 12 or younger) will receive a Jimmy Fund Walk T-shirt and medal in the mail.
With Walk day falling on their wedding weekend this year, Julie Nickerson & Chris Bates knew they had to support the Jimmy Fund Walk – whether they could be there in-person or not!
“Walk day falls on my wedding day this year, so I am proud to do a symbolic walk down the aisle in memory of my grandmother, a patient at Dana-Farber. I wear her ring to honor her. We walk to honor those who can’t be with us on our wedding day and to celebrate those who are!”
