WHY WE'RE FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

Welcome to Team Pedi Genes! Your support goes directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Pediatric Cancer Genetic Risk Program (PCGRP). The program provides cancer risk assessment for children, comprehensive recommendations for managing cancer risk in children, and psychosocial support for families affected by hereditary cancer. We also conduct research into many aspects of cancer risk and its management. We are one of the few cancer genetic risk programs in the U.S. focused specifically on pediatric cancer risk.

On Sunday, October 3, 2021 participants are encouraged to register as virtual walkers to walk in their own neighborhoods, hiking trails, treadmills, or wherever safe for the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai. While we won't physically be together on Walk day, our commitment to Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund has never been stronger.

Thank you for supporting our team in the Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
