This year, I walk for the memory of…
The year of 2020 has been challenging for everyone, but amidst the daily concerns of hand-washing, mask-wearing and social distancing brought on by COVID-19, it is often easy to forget that there are those among us still waging an even tougher struggle against the ravages of cancer. This year, we lost a wonderful person, friend, mother and wife, at the young age of 49…Lori lost her battle with cancer after just two months from hearing of her diagnoses.
While the efforts of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute have enabled many personal success stories for cancer patients around the world, the reality is that the hopes and prayers of countless others will just need more time for their individual successful outcomes to be realized.
This October, I will once again be walking 26.2 miles for the Dana Farber/Jimmy Fund Walk, to raise money and awareness that cancer continues to affect so many lives. Due to COVID-19 however, I will be unable to walk the route of the Boston Marathon, so instead, I will be mapping my own 26.2-mile route around my local hometown and surrounding communities.
I will walk with Lori on my mind and hope that any money I raise may someday help to find a cure.hank you in advance for your donation.
I know in my heart that together we can make a difference!
