On Sept. 18, John and Karol Murray of Falls Church will walk up to 26.2 miles along the historic route of the Boston Marathon in the 23rd annual Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. They will be among the nearly 9,000 walkers expected to participate with the collective goal of raising more than $7.5 million for lifesaving adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund.
Since its 1989 inception, the Walk has raised more than $73 million.
The Jimmy Fund supports Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, helping to raise funds for adult and pediatric cancer care and research and improve the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world. For more information, visit jimmyfund.org.
