About This Event
Registration is now open for the 2021Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai. The Jimmy Fund Walk will be a virtual event to ensure the safety of everyone in the community. Participants will be encouraged to “Walk Your Way” from wherever they are most comfortable—whether that be from their neighborhood, favorite trail, or from a treadmill on Sunday, October 3rd.
The 2021 Jimmy Fund Walk will continue to unite the community to raise funds for the Jimmy Fund to support all forms of adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at the nation’s premier cancer center, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Whether participating for themselves, loved ones, neighbors, or co-workers, each walker shares a common purpose: to support breakthroughs that will benefit cancer patients around the world.
Cancer care and research does not rest, even during a pandemic. We need the support of dedicated walkers now more than ever. Everyone in the Jimmy Fund community is an important partner in The Dana-Farber Campaign, our ambitious $2 billion, 7-year fundraising effort to prevent, treat, and defy cancer. The Dana-Farber Campaign will accelerate the Institute’s strategic priorities by supporting Revolutionary Science, Extraordinary Care, Exceptional Expertise, and Essential Opportunities.
Please register today and our staff can help you kickstart your fundraising.
