I write this with more than a bit of shame. I can blame the move, the office change, and a busy real estate market, but in reality, I can only blame myself.
I am dedicated to the work that Dana Farber Cancer Institute does. They are one the top five cancer centers in the country, and they are right here in our back yard. Two of my fellow REALTORS have taken part in trial treatment programs, and both of them are here today, over 10 years later.
I am about to complete my 13th Jimmy Fund Walk for DFCI. I have worked on the PanMass Challenge for 9 years to try and give back as thanks to the hundreds of volunteers on the Walk. There are so many others that do so much for DFCI, and I applaud them!
I have had a dream of putting together a team of walkers for a few years. Each year I think this is the year. I know that I can raise a thousand or more, but how much better if I could gather 5 or 10 or 20 people who each might raise $500. That’s $2,500 or $5,000 or $10,000. It would be so important for DFCI….but I haven’t pulled it together.
I am starting NOW. I am asking for anyone who might be interested in doing the Jimmy Fund Walk to send me a message. I will be in touch. I promise. I will tell you about the different mileage opportunities….you do not need to go 26 miles, 1 or 2 will do. I will tell you about the thrill of crossing the finish line. I will tell you how to get yourself ready to do whatever mileage you choose. We can share idea about fundraising. We can make a difference!! I don’t care if you are 5 or 75, we can do this!!
