WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER
Last year just after Grace getting admitted to children’s hospital for leukemia, Katie and I were talking about ways we could help raise awareness. Well I’m that conversation Katie asked about the Jimmy Fund Walk. Just so happened the walk was later that same day and some amazing staff brought us over to watch. As we stood on the bridge over the walks beginning we saw a sea of people, groups in matching shirts all walking to help our little girl. Just before the walk kicked off they all turn and wave to Grace, to us, to all the families Dana-Farber has and continues to compassionately care for. Katie and I promised from that day forward we would be that army walking, raising awareness and funds to ensure not only do we find a cure but also comfort those affected now.
So that’s why I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon(R) Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
