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! This will be my 7th marathon journey on behalf of the Jimmy Fund. I am proud of the thousands of dollars raised over these last 6 years.
During my journey of all these miles, I have met so many who have used the services of the Jimmy Fund and Dana Farber. These patients and families keep me moving one step at a time.
I began walking in 2015 in memory of my former mother in law, Rita. She supported my running and was a great cheerleader. She passed in April 2015 from cancer and was a patient of Dana Farber in Weymouth. That same year, I joined the Dana Farber Cancer Center at South Shore Hospital's Boston Marathon team. I ran for them in 2016 and 2017, raising over $24,000.
My efforts continue not only in memory of Rita, but many others that I love, but also those of friends and family as well as all that continue the fight to a healthy life.
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 compassionate patient care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can conquer cancer!
