Published: 6/5/2019 1:03:57 PM

BOSTON — Registration is now open for the 2019 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, the nation’s highest fundraising single-day walk. Scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 22, funds raised from the Jimmy Fund 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.

There is an option for everyone. Participants can choose from any of the below four distances 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 throughout 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 September 22, who still want to support the cause.

The Jimmy Fund Walk has raised more than $135 million in its 30-year history. When you donate to Dana-Farber’s Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, you are helping patients directly. Every dollar you donate and every step you take helps those in need.  The Boston Athletic Association has supported the Walk since 1989, and Hyundai has been the presenting sponsor since 2002.

To register for the Walk (#JimmyFundWalk), to support a walker, or to volunteer, visit www.JimmyFundWalk.org or call (866) 531-9255. Registrants can enter the promo code NEWS for $5 off the registration fee.
