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

My husband Richy and I are participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.

We are honored to be a part of Team Ritchie and to walk in his honor.  We'd known Ritchie Strangie since his Kindergarten years with our son. He was a special young man with a heart of gold. His smile lit up the room.

In June 2018, at the young age of 28, Ritchie lost his 2-year battle with Cancer.  Ritchie had participated in several of the Jimmy Fund events and his parents say they were so good to him. This weekend we will honor him by raising funds for the Jimmy Fund.

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 compassionate patient care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.

If you prefer, you can send a check to me made out to Dana Farber, Jimmy Fund. (Message me for my address if needed.)
