Second year doing this! I am participating in the 2018 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, to be held later this month on September 23rd. This runs the same course as the Boston Marathon, from Hopkinton to Boston. I plan to do the full 26.2 miles, and this year my wife Jules, as well as my brother Steve and his wife Jill all plan to participate in the race.
Why are we doing it? Because Dana-Farber does good work. They invest in families and patient care for children with cancer, as well as research which is making a difference in people's lives. My family and Jules, as well as many of our friends families have been impacted by cancer, so we hope to do something to contribute. Last year I met and was moved by individuals that Dana-Farber has helped along the route.
Please consider if you could give a donation in any amount to support my walk and the work of Dana Farber.
