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 $330 or more (or $130 or more if you are 12 or younger) will receive a Jimmy Fund Walk T-shirt and medal in the mail.
Lori has been walking since 2009, and when scheduling gets crazy, she doesn't let that stop her from walking.
“I have walked on Amy’s Admirers/Webber’s Warriors since 2009 and it’s one of my favorite days of the year. When I can’t be there on Walk day, I do my own Virtual Walk so I can participate in spirit. Here I am walking in Paris in 2013 and this year, I will be walking virtually in Toronto! It’s a great way to stay involved even when your schedule gets crazy! ”
