Disclosure: Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is a client of Influence Central.
When it comes to cancer, we all know someone who fought (or fights) the fight. Parents, siblings, grandparents, friends or colleagues – cancer doesn’t discriminate. Communities of families, friends and strangers come together through shared experiences and the desire to eradicate this disease. We not only want to help those in need, but hope to make a positive difference in the fight, while teaching those around us the importance of helping others and giving back.
The Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai provides adults, children, family and friends with an invaluable experience in the fight against cancer. Choosing from four different routes, thousands take to the iconic Boston Marathon® course to form a united front to help conquer cancer. For most, the experience is personal.
Organized by the Jimmy Fund and held this year on Sunday, September 27th, the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai raises the most money of any single-day walk in the nation. The funds raised through the Jimmy Fund Walk benefit adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Since 1948, The Jimmy Fund, proudly supported by the Boston Red Sox, as well as the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, the Pan-Mass Challenge, and the Variety Children’s Charity of New England, enables the generosity of millions to help reduce the burden of cancer for patients and families worldwide.
We invite you to join us in lacing up and getting out there this Sunday, September 27th to support the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. To learn more, please visit their website, or follow the Jimmy Fund Walk on Facebook.
