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

Maine to Massachusetts

My walk to fight cancer 2021

On or before October 3rd, I will join thousands of others in fundraising walks to fight cancer.  Two years ago, I joined those walkers in person following the full Boston Marathon route. This time, due to Covid, we will walk separately.  I will walk on my own from the State of Maine to The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, on public roads, in one day. 

The route is 17.2 miles, nearly 28 km. I am hoping you can support this effort by making a donation to the Jimmy Fund, which is a fundraising arm for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute of Boston.  You can learn more about the Jimmy Fund at https://www.jimmyfund.org/ and about the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at www.dana-farber.org.  Please make a donation by clicking on the "DONATE" button on this page.

After my last Jimmy Fund walk, William G. Kaelin, MD, a Dana-Farber Institute researcher, won a Nobel Prize for his breakthrough discovery on how cancer develops and how to counter that process.  I have been attending talks and Zoom presentations by Dr. Kaelin and other researchers during the last 18 months, learning how they are making significant progress on many fronts.

We all know someone who has struggled with some form of cancer.  I recently lost a dear friend, Les Leider, after a long, brave struggle with a particularly cruel version of the disease.  Let’s make an effort to make these battles obsolete.  That is what my walk is about.  Please make a contribution to the Jimmy Fund to make that day sooner. 

Knowing I have your support will make every step from Maine to Massachusetts easier.  Thank you.
