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! This walk is especially important to me! This year I am walking in support of my student Emma. When people think of superheroes they often picture superman or wonder woman soaring through the sky saving people from evil. I'm convinced I have a real life superhero right in my 4th grade classroom. Although my superhero doesn't wear a cape, she is the definition of brave, strong and a true fighter! In just a few short weeks of being Emma's teacher I've witnessed her incredible determination and love for school. Often coming in after treatment, eager to learn and participate in class. To say I'm proud to be her teacher is an understatement!
Having Emma in my class is an honor! 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 like Emma!
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can conquer cancer!
