I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
Please consider walking with us on 9/22 or making a donation of any amount - every dollar helps.
We created Team John Leary in the fall of 2004 when my brother John was diagnosed with gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) and have walked every year since. When he lost his battle in 2007 our family and close friends committed to this walk until all families are safe from this dreaded diagnosis. It is always an inspiring day - the staff, volunteers, dedicated walkers, generous doners & sponsors come together and motivate everyone around them to do whatever they can to support this important cause. While it is a sad day for many who have lost loved ones, it is also a hopeful & optimistic one because together we can make a difference for those struggling.
When you make a gift to my walk, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge science and highly compassionate cancer care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families. So far Team John Leary has raised well over $150,000!
Thank you for any support you can offer - please share this with anyone who may be interested in helping.
