I am participating in the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
I started walking 8 years ago in support of my dear friend Colleen Sullivan, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 39. Due to the amazing care she received from Dana Farber, Colleen is now a survivor. We continue to walk to give back and help support those who have been affected by this terrible disease.
This year, our fundraising efforts will go directly towards Dr.Stegmaier’s Research Fund for Rhabdomyosarcoma in memory of Kyla McGarry. Kyla lost her life in March 2020 due to this horrible disease at the age of 16. Kyla’s positivity and love for life was an inspiration to so many! I am honored to raise money in her memory, and I encourage you to start thinking of ways that we can support Dr.Stegmaier so no other child ever has to endure this again.
Let’s get the word out and recruit as many people as we can!!
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 compassionate patient 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 Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can conquer cancer!
