WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK IN MEMORY OF RHONDA HTOO

I am participating in the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, as a dedication to the memory of my wife, Rhonda Htoo, who died of lung cancer August 31, 2017.

The Jimmy Fund Walk was very important to Rhonda. It was her way of resisting the disease that claimed her life. She became energized and hopeful participating in the walk. It was her way of pushing back against the cancer that ended her life. She told me that it was the most important thing she did. I substituted for her in 2017, just weeks after she died, to honor her memory and wishes. I have walked in every Jimmy Fund Walk since then. I am continuing her tradition.

The pandemic completely changed the Jimmy Fund walk as well as everything else. Since we can't walk the Marathon route all together, this year I decided to retrace the route that Rhonda was able to walk when she participated in the Jimmy Fund Walk herself.

For me, this is about remembering Rhonda. Please show your support by contributing to a cause she believed in.

When you make a gift to Rhonda's Memory 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!
