Thanks for visiting my fundraising page for the 2021 Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way!
As you likely know, the Jimmy Fund Walk is the event I am privileged enough to work on every single day. What you might not know is that the 2020 Jimmy Fund Walk raised the least amount of money of all 7 Jimmy Fund Walks I have worked on BUT it is the year I am absolutely the most proud of. During a time when Dana-Farber needed philanthropic support more than ever (increased PPE, equipment for digital health, undertaking a tremendously complicated vaccine program, keeping clinical trials going, and much more!) my team and I STEPPED it up and did all that we could to raise more than $6.3 million!
The Jimmy Fund Walk community came together through Zoom Town Hall meetings, planning hundreds of "mini walks" all over the country, and just simply supporting each other by checking in. We showed the world that cancer doesn't stop during a pandemic and we won't stop providing support.
This year I am PUMPED to do it all again. We have so many lessons learned from last year about how to provide the best and safest event and I am even more inspired because my mom is now a proud Dana-Farber patient.
Please consider making a donation (any amount is appreciated!) or register to walk with us on Sunday 10/3. We will likely plan a route in West Roxbury and it will be a fun day--you can also walk from your own community that day!
Thanks for supporting me.
