Heartfelt thanks to everyone who walked with me by contributing on this fund-raising page to support Dana-Farber's research and treatment programs!! The high temperature made the walk a bit more challenging this year, but I finished 26.2 miles and mustered enough energy to end it by making my "signature move" - skipping across the finish line! Fund-raising webpages are open until October 31, so if you or someone you know would like to add a contribution, please do so.
When you make contribute to Dana-Farber on this fund-raising page, 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.
As always, I dedicated my walk in memory of my Mom and Ray's Mom, who fought and endured cancer with bravery and dignity many, many years ago, and in memory of my Dad, who loved to walk. And, as always, I took the names of everyone who donates on this page, and those they honor and remember, with me on the day of the walk, and read them all at the start, so that we were "walking" together in support of cancer research and treatment.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
