I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
Why am I doing this? Obviously, cancer is a terrible disease that affects millions of people. I'm walking to support Rosemary Iwakura, a wonderful teenager who is a close friend to my girlfriend's children. I have several children very close to Rosemary's age. I couldn't imagine any one of them going through this.
I have also seen the support from an amazing community that has banded together to support Rosemary. In the end, the question is... how can I not do this? If a 13 mile walk can help provide Dana Farber with the resources to fight this battle, it's the least I can do.
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 highly compassionate cancer 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 participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk.
