WHY WE'RE FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

Like most Jimmy Fund Walk teams, ours began with a cancer diagnosis. Six years ago this August, a 32 year old mother of two (Tara) was diagnosed with triple positive breast cancer. After undergoing surgeries and treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Tara wanted to do something to help others and to thank those who helped her. In September 2013, Tara and her five year old son walked in their first Jimmy Fund Walk. 

From there, the team's numbers grew, mostly because Tara joined forces with a remarkable woman (Amy), who became the team's co-captain. By 2017, Team Tara had surpassed the $500,000 as a team and raised $523,886!

This year we set out with HUGE goals...300 team members and $200,000. We can only do this if we have a mighty TEAM of people ready to walk to conquer cancer. Please join us in this effort because one step at a time, we WILL conquer cancer.
