I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer! On October 4, 2020 I will be running a 10k in Emma Hoffman's hometown of Scituate, MA. Thank you so much to Roger Dawley for organizing.
The Emma's Angels team is walking in honor of the lovely Emma Hofmann. Emma was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer, in the summer of 2014. While she passed away in January of 2017, at age 19, her spirit of warmth and empathy towards others lives on through acts of kindness, large and small.
All donations made to Emma’s Angels will go directly toward glioblastoma research at The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
