Thanks for visiting my page! Once again, I am taking on the 26.2-mile trek from Hopkinton to Boston in support of the Jimmy Fund!
Last year I was able to raise upwards of $600 to support some of the bravest kids I am lucky to call my friends. (My sunshines know who they are! xoxox)
It is fitting that this walk takes place in September, which is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. For these kids and families, the diagnosis is truly a marathon- a constant cycle of clinic visits, daily meds, and horrible side effects. Reasearch dollars are truly making a difference to find better, safer treatments, and to hope for an eventual cure. In the meantime, it's my job as an advocate for these families to do what I can to lighten their load- and this is a step (or few) in the right direction. The work that DFCI and The Jimmy Fund do makes me so excited to one day work with these families as a child life specialist!
I have set my goal high of raising at least $750 this year to support DFCI. I cannot do this alone and need your help! Any donation is so so greatly appreciated and serves as my motivation when the going gets tough out there on the course. Cash and checks can be mailed directly to me or right to The Jimmy Fund.
I hope you will send me lots of love and good mojo as I lace up my sneakers in just a few weeks!
Thank you in advance! XOXO, Francie
