I am participating in the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
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.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can conquer cancer!
Here are some great words from our team leader on why donating this year is as important as ever:
"While contemplating the year that we just had during a recent check-up at Dana-Farber, it really hit me how important it's going to be to provide aid to hospitals and cancer centers like DFCI this year, as many people who put off going to the doctor during the pandemic are going to need support. Many things in our lives came to a halt this year, but unfortunately cancer doesn't take a break. As a result of last year, fundraising for these medical centers is also down - money that would typically go towards patient care and research, the two pillars of DFCI's mission of working towards a tomorrow without cancer. I'm reaching out to ask that you continue to join me in supporting DFCI in this important mission.
Last year under extraordinary circumstances, my team, The Acute Lymphomaniacs, still raised $17,395 for DFCI and the Jimmy Fund for a 4 year fundraising total of $85,216.20! My goal this year is for our team to at least raise $14,783.80 to meet, and hopefully surpass, a 5 year total of $100,000! These values are staggering, and I thank you all for your generosity, love, and endless support." -- Allie Klein
I would love for you to help us reach this goal!
