Each year the GI Oncology group puts together a team to walk the Jimmy Fund walk. While there are a number of patient led groups that we also have within the disease center, the TEAM GI group is normally composed of GI staff, families and friends.
I personally love to walk the full marathon route and take the bus from Boston to Hopkinton in the early morning. Each mile a DFCI patient is there to cheer you on as you walk, with water and snack stations, a lunch picnic area and numerous folks cheering you on as you go the energy and experience are amazing. We all end together at Copley Plaza for a great afternoon with music and speeches. I have loved this event for all 10 years I have walked it and I hope you will join us!
