BOSTON — On Sunday, Sept. 22, thousands will participate in the iconic fundraising walk for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Registration is now open for the 2019 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, the nation’s highest fundraising single-day walk. Funds raised from the Walk will support all forms of adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at the nation’s premier cancer center, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  

Participants can choose from any of the below four routes along the historic Boston Marathon® course:

· Marathon Walk (26.2 miles) from Hopkinton

· Half Marathon Walk (13.1 miles) from Wellesley

· 10K Walk (6.2 miles) from Newton

· 5K Walk (3.1 miles) from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Walkers are treated to refueling stations along the course as well as a celebration at the Copley Square Finish Line, complete with food, music, and a speaking program.

All walkers commit to raise a minimum of $325, except for walkers 12 years old and younger whose fundraising commitment is $125. There is also a Virtual Walker option for those unable to attend the event on Sept. 22, who still want to support the cause.

The Jimmy Fund Walk has raised more than $135 million in its 30-year history. The Boston Athletic Association has supported the Walk since 1989, and Hyundai has been the presenting sponsor since 2002.
