I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
It is hard to believe this is my 10th year walking to support the Jimmy Fund Walk to fight cancer.
Many things are different this year but what hasn't changed is the need to find a cure for cancer. Last year my reason for walking changed. While I will always walk to support those whose lives have been affected by cancer I now walk in memory of my dad who passed away last May from stage 4 Mesothelioma. He was a remarkable human being as well as a kindhearted father. I miss him.
This year walkers are not allowed along the Boston Marathon route. Each walker or team decides what virtual route they will walk. My route will take me from my home in Methuen, MA to the Fire House my dad spent many years working in Amesbury, MA and then I'll start the walk back home to mark the 26.2 miles.
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.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
