Call for Walkers: Register for the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai
Registration is open for the 29th annual Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai®, the nation’s most successful single-day fundraising walk. Scheduled for Sunday, September 24, 2017, the fundraiser supports adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at the nation’s premier cancer center, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
The Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk is the only event other than the Boston Marathon® sanctioned by the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) to use the official marathon name and historic 26.2-mile course. Participants can choose from four route options:
- 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 victory celebration at the Copley Square Finish Line, complete with food, music, and a speaking program.
All walkers commit to raise a minimum of $300, except for walkers 12-years-old and younger whose fundraising commitment is $100. There is also a Virtual Walker option for those unable to attend the event on September 24, but who still want to support the cause.
