Fifteen years ago, I participated in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk, walking the 1/2 marathon route to help in the battle to beat cancer. It was ever so touching to walk among the many teams of families, friends, and co-workers who were all walking to support a loved one, or honoring a loved one who they had lost. And of course, I must not forget to mention the SURVIVORS who participated in the walk...beyond Inspiring!
I'm happy to say I'm walking again, this time challenging myself to complete the full 26.2 mile marathon route, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer! It may be a challenge, but I know it's nothing compared to what cancer patients go through in their battle to beat this terrible disease.
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 highly compassionate cancer care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.
Your donations will be ever so appreciated and make a world of difference for those battling this terrible disease. Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
