Registration is open for the 31st annual 2019 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk.
Scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 22, funds raised from the walk will support all forms of adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the nation’s premier cancer center.
Participants can choose from four routes along the historic Boston Marathon course: the Marathon Walk (26.2 miles) from Hopkinton; the Half Marathon Walk (13.1 miles) from Wellesley; the 10K Walk (6.2 miles) from Newton; and the 5K Walk (3.1 miles) from Dana-Farber.
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 and younger, whose fundraising commitment is $125. There is also a virtual walker option for those unable to attend the event 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 it since 1989, and Hyundai has been the presenting sponsor since 2002.
