WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

Like you, too many people in my life have uttered the words: "it's cancer," and my heart breaks. 

In 2007, a friend from college lost her battle with cancer at the age of 31. My precious mother-in-law died from cancer six years ago while my father-in-law is an 13-year cancer survivor. And, another dear friend succumbed to the disease four years ago leaving a wife and young son.  The list of the lives impacted by cancer is endless. 

With those individuals and many others close to my heart and mind, I am embarking on a 13.1 mile trek to help eradicate cancer. On Sunday, Oct 3, I will participate in the 2021 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk to take steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer. And I am humbly asking for your support as I participate in event my way and  march the streets, communities and neighborhoods in and around the Charlotte area. 

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. You can make a donation through my website at https://danafarber.jimmyfund.org/site/TR?fr_id=1160&pg=personal&px=1018026.

Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we will conquer cancer!
