WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

Covid stopped a lot of events- such as in-person schooling, eating out, weddings, graduations, parties, etc.  But is didn't stop CANCER!

So, once again, I am participating, for my 28th consecutive time, in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!

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 highly compassionate cancer care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.

My Dad began his training for this walk last March.  Unfortunately, He is no longer here, due to ALS.  I am walking this year's walk in his honor.  I am sure he will be with me every step of the way.  This fundraiser was very near and dear to his heart.

Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
