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.
Sarah Liziewski walks in memory of her husband, Dan, who bravely fought pancreatic cancer.
“The Jimmy Fund Walk is a wonderful way to honor my husband. I walked in 2017 with my daughter (pictured left), and virtually walked in 2018 from Portland, ME. My daughter and I continually checked in on each other as she walked the Marathon route with a new friend. I would highly recommend participating as a virtual walker. You can map your route anywhere in the world!”
