Friends and family I need your help!! In past years, I would have been fundraising for two months in advance of my annual Jimmy Fund walk. But this year I have been distracted with buying a new house and selling our house, so I am way behind schedule. Nevertheless, 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!
Covid19 has curtailed many activities and put a stop to many others. But what it hasn't stopped is cancer! Cancer is still making people sick and claiming victims, like my brother Jimmy pictured above. The Dana Farber Cancer Institute needs your help now more than ever. So our walk won't be the traditional Hopkington to Boston marathon, covid19 has seen to that. The Fighting Flanagans will be walking around the Wachusett Reservoir, beginning and ending at the Pine Grove Cemetery in Boylston, MA. which will put us very close to the 26.2 miles we traditionally walk. I hope I can count on all of you to support this very worthwhile cause.
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!
