WHY WE'RE FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND

 

This is a picture of Norm Payette, Wilbur Wildes, Ge Erskine, and Dave McHugh. It was taken in 1973. This was just prior to them embarking on a walk from South Portland Maine to Fenway Park in Boston. Those cans they’re holding? They were to collect money during their walk for the Jimmy Fund. The Red Sox affiliation with the Jimmy Fund goes back more than 65 years.

Those were our dads.

We are Denise Payette-Holmes, Peter Wildes, Link Erskine, and Joe McHugh.

Wilbur, Ge, and Norm have passed, Dave is still with us. Our father’s walk has been part of the legacy of each or our families, gaining stature through the years. We felt it was time to pay homage to them by the four of us retracing our father’s steps and recreate that walk, hopefully leaving behind a further legacy for our children and our children’s children.

What better way than to raise money for such a worthy cause – The Jimmy Fund and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

The four of us will be following in our father’s footsteps this year. We will be leaving from the exact same location as they did, Wilkinson Park on New York Avenue in South Portland Maine. We start on Tuesday July 6th at Noon. Our goal is to reach the field at Fenway Park on Sunday July 11th prior to the start of the game between our beloved Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies. We have had many conversations with the Jimmy Fund, Boston Red Sox, and the police departments of each municipality we will be walking through to guide us through the planning of this fund-raising event.

The Jimmy Fund solely supports Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, raising funds for adult and pediatric cancer care and research to improve the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world. Since its founding in 1948, the Jimmy Fund has raised millions of dollars through thousands of community fundraising events.

The story of the Jimmy Fund is one of grassroots involvement — of thousands of people organizing bake sales, lemonade stands, runs, walks, golf tournaments, dances, and softball games to raise money for cancer research and care.

This is our chance to join those thousands of others before us, including our Dads, to help raise funds for this fantastic organization.100% of this donation goes to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston

Thanks from Denise, Pete, Link, and Joe (and Norm, Wilbur, Ge, and Dave)
