I am participating in the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
When I decided to participate in the Jimmy Fund Walk back in 2010 it was because I felt the need to do something for others. Since then, I have lost, both my parents to cancer, my sister-in-law was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and is currently in remission. My brother-in-law was diagnosed with Lymphoma and is currently treating at Dana-Farber. I have lost many people to this terrible disease, Aunts, Uncles, cousins, and friends. I have become very involved in this walk and Team Hope over the last 12 years has raised $94,685.70. Walk day has become one of my favorite days of the year. Through this organization I have met so many people, whether they were part of the walk staff, walkers, or volunteers. I am truly proud of Team Hope and am looking to beat our total fundraising from last year. Even though this year we cannot walk our normal route I am walking 13.1 miles in my own neighborhood. Cancer does not stop, and neither can we. If you can donate any amount even $5 it will help towards our goal. I appreciate all your support over the last 12 years.
