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

The last few months have been difficult for everyone, and have shown us what is truly important in this world – our family, our friends, and doing everything we can to help those who are most vulnerable.

Cancer does not rest, and the Friends won’t, either.  Together, we will continue moving to support patients and research at Dana-Farber. 

We are walking to support assistance for our most vulnerable patients and research creating new cures that will give patients more quality time with their families. 

Please support the Friends in one of two ways:

Join our team: choose a distance and date(s). Many of our team members have chosen to walk, run, dance, and simply move together between now and October 4th for our moms, dads, sisters, brothers and Friends!

Make a gift to our team: any amount is appreciated and will make a difference - especially this year when so many of our patients face additional hurdles due to COVID-19!

ABOUT THE FRIENDS

The Friends of Dana-Farber were founded in 1976 with a dual mission: to fundraise in support of research and patient care at the Institute, and to provide services and volunteer programs that enhance Dana-Farber’s healing environment for patients and families. 

We distribute every dollar we raise to researchers, clinicians, and patient caregivers through a competitive grants process each summer, and the funds raised by Team Friends will be distributed the same way. 

Together, we use the Power of Friends to improve patients’ experiences at Dana-Farber.  We support patient care programs that can make visiting the Institute a bit brighter, and we support the research that will move the needle toward Dana-Farber’s ultimate goal: finally eliminating cancer, once and for all.
