Featured volunteer a past Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk


Bob and Mary Young were rockstar volunteers at both Early Check-In and the Wellesley Half Marathon Start for the 2023 Jimmy Fund Walk.

“This was our first time volunteering for the Walk and what a rewarding experience! Hundreds of walkers arrived for their bibs and shirts, and the vibe was so exciting. We cheered them on and thanked them for walking, while they thanked us for volunteering! As a cancer survivor, the opportunity to give back to Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund was especially important to Bob, but also to our family.”
