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 Ovarian Cancer Brigade
The Ovarian Cancer Brigade team walks to keep the continued success achieved by Dana-Farber moving—they bring hope and commitment to eradicate this terrible disease.

Why do you walk? Share your story with the Jimmy Fund Walk Staff and you could be featured on the Jimmy Fund Walk website or pitched for media coverage.


Recruit others to register for the Jimmy Fund Walk during the month of July and have the chance to earn (and have the people you recruit have the chance to win) a one-night stay at the historic Omni Parker House located in downtown Boston.
  • The top 2 recruiters in July will each receive a one night stay at the Omni Parker House (be sure to have those you recruit list your name in the registration question "Did a Walker refer you to participate?")
  • Anyone who registers during the month of July will be entered to win a one night stay at the Omni Parker House, so this is a great time to sign up!

Check out the Jimmy Fund Walk gear you can select from based on your final fundraising!
