I will be walking with Kelly and participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
The Jimmy Fund has been in my life since I was a little girl. My dad always bought a raffle ticket or made a donation. Even when money was tight. Which was often. He instilled in us the importance of giving what you can. Many years later as an adult my dad bought a raffle ticket from Burger King to support the Jimmy Fund. He put it away and forgot about it till the next day. He woke up scratched the ticket and WON! He won the grand prize! A brand-new Hyundai Sante Fe! It was amazing! I continue to support the Jimmy Fund along with my daughter Kelly. Many of us have lost or fighting this horrible disease. My dad, my mom, my bestest friend, Tony, Kelly's dad. 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!
