Hey friends! The countdown is on! We are at 7 days and $880 away from the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Virtual Walk, presented by Hyundai. On Sunday, October 4, for the 4th time, I will be lacing up and hitting the road toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
2020 has definitely been a very different year! While so many of our lives have been consumed by all of the changes created by covid, there are still so many friends, coworkers and family members who have been newly diagnosed and/or are still struggling with various types of cancer. Many of these brave warriors have been able to receive treatment and care at the Dana-Farber Center locally in Milford instead of having to make the frequent trips to Boston. What a gift and a blessing to have this level of care so close to home!
Due to covid concerns and restrictions, this year’s Jimmy Fund Walk is going virtual. This means that instead of walking the 26 mile Boston Marathon route, in the words of Fleetwood Mac, “You Can Go Your Own Way”! This is SUPER exciting because I'd LOVE for you to walk alongside me with your support – and your own 2 feet if you’d like!
I’m mapping out my route and would love to include a stop at your house or maybe the home of someone you’d like me to walk in honor of. 26 miles is, indeed, in the sports world a marathon (and kudos to those of you who can run them!) but it's nothing in comparison to the definition of a marathon fighting cancer.
Will you help me meet a challenge? 26 miles - $2,600 in fundraising – and with no less than 26 family members’ and friends’ names coming with me as I walk. I hope you'll join me, if you’re able, by donating here!!!
I'm looking forward to this year’s Jimmy Fund Walk and look forward to many of you joining me! Thank you for your support, in whatever way you are able!
