about the walk

The Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai has raised nearly $120 million for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's fight against cancer since 1989.

In 2016, more than 9,400 participants and 1,000 volunteers raised more than $8.7 million for compassionate patient care and innovative cancer research at Dana-Farber.

The temperatures for this weekend's Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk are expected to be warm. Please read the email that was sent to registered participants with tips for walking in the heat.
