WHY I'M FUNDRAISING AND WALKING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO DEFY CANCER

In less than 2 weeks, I am participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, on October 2, in Boston, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.  This event is important to me because I can walk and because I want to honor and remember the lives that have been lost and/or forever changed by cancer.  Our team captain, Julie, is a life-long friend of Kristen's (our daughter-in-law).  Julie's husband was diagnosed with cancer several years ago and unfortunately the cancer was stronger than he was and he didn't survive it.  This is the 6th year for Team Wolverine's commitment to walk, to fundraise, and to one day wipe out cancer.    I will be dedicating specific miles of my walk to those whom I know and love whose lives have been impacted by cancer diagnosis.

When you make a gift to my Walk, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge research and compassionate patient care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.

Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
