This will be my 13th year supporting the Jimmy Fund Walk as the captain of the Images of Hope Team, and I would like to enthusiastically invite you to join us in this historic year, and participate in the “2020 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk...Your Way” on Sunday, October 4, 2020.
We at Dana-Farber have continued our fight against cancer throughout this ordeal because cancer has affected so many of us in so many ways. I was personally very affected by the loss of a cancer research pioneer, a colleague and a friend who recently died from the disease. His name was Sam Gambhir, MD and he was only 57 years old. We lost a giant, but I can help by walking for Sam and all who have been affected by this disease, and by vouching to help support cancer research. I hope that you will as well.
We do recognize that people have met serious challenges during this pandemic and may be restricted with funds, or may want to help support fundraisers related to COVID-19 during these trying times. We aim to keep everyone's financial situation in mind while considering helping cancer research, and are still hoping to raise $10,000 this year.
Feel free to post our links to all your social media pages. Even small donations add up quickly and go to a great cause! Please also remember to check with your employer's human resources department to find out if your organization will match your gift and double the impact!
With my profound gratitude and warmest wishes to everyone.
Please be and stay safe,
