I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer! This is our 25th year walking as Team Karen in memory of our dear friend , Karen Swymer Shanahan, who battled cancer from the age of 9 to 32. We all have been personally touched in some way by this disease. Let’s join together to make a difference!
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.
This year is a momentous event, celebrating 25 years walking as Team Karen and raising $500,000! This will be the final year that we walk together as a team, so please help me to make it very special by making a donation! You can contribute online http://.danafarber.jimmyfund.org/goto/mcard25
