HOPKINTON, here I come!
HOPKINTON, here I come!

26.2 miles on October 2, 2022

Since 2017 I have been walking and fundraising for the 

Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer! Together you have helped me raise $16,295.81. 

For these past two pandemic years, the Walk was Your Way, in everyone’s neighborhoods and local parks. And yes, I really did miss the challenge of those four Newton hills. 

This year, for my 6th Walk, plans are to return to the historic Boston Marathon route. My goal is to once again step off in Hopkinton at the crack of dawn and cross the finish line in Copley Square later that afternoon, completing the full 26.2 miles. Once again, I am privileged to hang ribbons on the Honor Wall for friends and family, yours and mine, who are cancer thrivers and survivors, and in memory of those we have lost.  

I have already begun training walks to prep for the Newton hills. Rest assured, my sherpa is always ready to drive, tote, chat, take photos, and find parking (mostly in legal spots!)

When you make a gift, 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 to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.

Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. "You don't have to be a doctor to cure cancer."
