Janet walks virtually so she can be at home with her dad, her #1 supporter.

“My journey walking virtually started in 2020. I wanted to continue my goal of walking the marathon 26 times in memory of my mom. My dad and sister helped me map out a walking route and kept me going on Walk day. When I finished, my dad and I took this photo, as if we were in Boston wearing our Jimmy Fund caps. I have walked virtually ever since. My dad is now an angel watching over me, and he will always be my biggest fan.”
