I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
This will be my tenth year walking for the Jimmy Fund. I started walking in honor of Avalanna a young friend whose life ended too soon after her battle with brain cancer. In the past few years, I have been walking with a team to raise money for Neuroendocrine cancer research. I am fortunate to have found and removed a very small NET tumor and go back to Dana Farber each year to monitor things. My team Shuffle for Dana Farber is run by the family of Paddy's Pub and O'Haras in Newton, who unfortunately lost their dad to NET cancer.
Distance Disclosure :) I have been dealing with some back issues this summer and will not be able to walk the entire 26.2 but will walk the max distance my body can handle. I have been taking long training walks and will make sure I hit 26.2 by some combination of walks.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
