Conquer Cancer with Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund!

WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai This year, I won't be heading into Boston to walk the famed marathon route, instead I will be walking 26.2 miles on my own route, each step will be toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!

Last year, with your generosity and help I was able to raise $10,200!  

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.

The funds raised by the Jimmy Fund Walk help to: 

  • Support Dana-Farber’s efforts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic including: supplying PEE, providing the technology to transition appointments to tele-medicine, and much more.
  • Advance Dana-Farber’s signature total patient care by enhancing patient and family programs, such as nutrition education, art and music therapy, and the pediatric Back to School Program.
  • Fund hundreds of clinical trials, which lead to the development of new cancer fighting drugs.
  • Maintain a world-class facility by attracting and retaining the highest caliber faculty, and recruiting young, promising, innovative scientists and clinicians from around the globe who will lead the next generation of cancer care and research
  • Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
