Using our feet in The Fight against Cancer!

CELEBRATING FIVE YEARS CANCER FREE!!

It’s that time of year again….the Jimmy Fund Marathon Walk is a few weeks away.   This year, due to Covid restrictions, the walk is looking different and will be “virtual” on October 4th.  We’ll still be walking, just not on the Marathon route but in our own neighborhoods, on tracks or treadmills, wherever we can get in the miles!

Normally, the month before the walk,  I spend the weekend at Mass Maritime Academy volunteering in the Command Center for the Pan Mass Challenge  bike ride, which raises millions every year for DFCI/Jimmy Fund.  This year, the PMC is also “virtual”.    I tell you this not so you will pat me on the back and say how wonderful I am, I tell you this because it means SO much to me.  I truly have a passion for Dana Farber and the Jimmy Fund, and I have since I read an article in the Boston Herald in 1967 about Mike Andrews, who was then the Red Sox second baseman.  (Recent article on Mike http://www.jimmyfund.org/about-us/boston-red-sox/players/mike-andrews/)

He was deeply committed to the kids being treated by Dana Farber  and felt he wanted  to give back to the community that supported him.  He spent years involved;  became President in the 1980’s and just retired a few years ago.  He said, "I'm a lucky guy to have had the chance to play professional baseball for 13 years and to appear in a couple of World Series, but there is no question that being part of Dana-Farber has been the most rewarding part of my professional life."   How cool is that?

If there is one thing I want people to remember about me when I’m gone, it’s that I cared.  

Please support me in any way you can….it means the world to me.
