Since 1989, participants have raised more than $60 million to support cancer research.
Volunteer at the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, a one-day event dedicated to conquering all forms of cancer. Since the first Walk in 1989, participants have raised more than $66 million to support cancer research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. This event would not be a success without the help of our volunteers, and our walkers truly appreciate the support! Volunteers can help with a variety of activities such as registration/check-in, food and beverage distribution, our Green Team, and cheering on walkers. Volunteer opportunities are located all along the Boston Marathon route, including Hopkinton, Wellesley, and Boston.
