WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO DEFY CANCER

My friend and hero Emily, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, which is a form of non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, last Oct.  Since then she has been fighting back with trips back and forth to Boston, countless rounds of chemo, marrow biopsy's, blood transfusions, blood clots, hair loss, endless meds, nausea, missed school - the list goes on and on... 

She is a fighter and will beat this but she still has a long road ahead.  We will walk in honor of her, show our support and stand behind her through this unexpected journey that no child should have to go through. 

The Jimmy Fund Walk will take place in Boston MA on Oct 2, 2022 and will end with crossing the Boston Marathon finish line in Copley Square!  We will be walking the half marathon route (13 miles).  

Please consider a donation to our team, or better yet, join our team and walk with us!


I am participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk 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 research 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 defy cancer!
