The McCue Family is participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer for TEAM RITCHIE!
Ritchie Strangie was one of my son's best friends growing up, and he became a part of our family very quickly. His smile and laughter was a constant in our home whether playing video games, watching sports events, eating, playing in the pool or during sleepovers. What I wouldn't give to hear his laugh again.
Ritchie fought cancer bravely and on his own terms for two years. Unfortunately, he lost his battle at the much too young age of 28. Watching our friends and our children say goodbye to their beloved son, grandson, brother, and friend was an experience I never wish to witness again.
The Jimmy Fund is an amazing organization along with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. From the moment you enter Dana-Farber, you will witness kindness and strength like you have never experienced before.
When you make a gift to my family's 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.
Please know that any amount will honor Ritchie's memory and help another child or adult in their journey. Thank you for supporting our participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
