On Sunday, October 4, (10-4) I will walk in my 4th Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk. Thousands of other walkers will choose to walk a 5K, 10K, half marathon, or full marathon. Due to the pandemic, this year's event has been renamed "YOUR WAY" and walkers will most certainly find a way to walk wherever and however they choose.
Once again, I challenge myself to walk the full 26.2 miles, but this year, my walk will not be along the historic Boston Marathon route. The starting point and finish line will be the top of my driveway here in Maryland.
Please, join me as we take steps toward the ultimate finish line--a world without cancer. When you make a gift to the 2020 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 patients and their families.
This research is so much more crucial during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Last year about 8500 walkers raised 8.5 million dollars!
I thank you for your support, prayers and donations as I train for my 4th Jimmy Fund Walk. I am proud to say that together with friends and family we raised $10,784.23 for the three previous walks.
As a 10 year breast cancer survivor, I'm living proof that TOGETHER we CAN conquer cancer!
Ten-Four, over and out, YOUR WAY!
