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!
My sister Pam was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in 2000. She fought valiantly, but it was a fight she could not win. She died in 2003 at the age of 36. In 2001, my brother Chris, who has been participating in the JF walk since 1993, wanted to give her strength and provide others with a way to honor her. He dedicated the walk to Pam in 2001, and she walked the last half-mile with him. In 2002 he formed "Powered by Pam" and friends and family gathered every year to raise money and walk in her memory. To date, Powered by Pam has raised over $747,000 to help eradicate cancer. We are back at it again - virtually this year. I'll be in Atlanta, and my brothers in Boston, San Francisco and Geneva (Illinois) and their families will be walking in memory of Pam and honor of all of those we know who have had cancer. Let's beat this thing!!
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
