My dad and me at the Jimmy Fund Walk finish line in 2010

COVID Can't Stop the Walk!

On Sunday, October 4, I will participate for an 11th year in the Jimmy Fund Walk to benefit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  I continue to walk each year in loving memory of my dad, Larry Alexander, who received extensive treatment from Dana-Farber for a rare blood disorder until his death in November 2012.

This year’s Walk will look quite different due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Since we cannot gather along the Boston Marathon route as we usually do, participants will be creating their own routes.  I am still committing to walking 26.2 miles, as I do every year, while mapping out my own bathroom and food stops along the way.

Although the Jimmy Fund Walk is virtual this year, the need for funding is greater than ever.  COVID-19 has significantly impacted everyday operations at Dana-Farber.  Funds raised by the Jimmy Fund Walk will help to support Dana-Farber’s increased needs for PPE, telemedicine technology, and additional staffing to keep their cancer patients safe and prevent infection, as well as their efforts to relieve pressing financial strains felt by patients and their families.

Please consider making a gift to this phenomenal institution in memory of my dad.

While this year’s Walk will be even more challenging without typical Walk Day fanfare or fellow walkers by my side, I am still just as excited to honor my dad through this annual tradition.  Knowing that I have the support of so many friends and family members will once again help me push through mile after mile.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.  It means so much to me and my family.
