    The Jimmy Fund, established in Boston in 1948, is comprised of community-based fundraising events and other programs that, solely and directly, benefit Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's lifesaving mission to provide compassionate patient care and groundbreaking cancer research for children and adults. The generosity of millions of people in Boston and around the world has helped the Jimmy Fund save countless lives and reduce the burden of cancer for patients and families worldwide.

    Teach children and young adults the importance of philanthropy by participating in a fun fundraising event that supports patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. By participating in these events children are able to tap into their creativity, build self–confidence, and learn the importance of fundraising in the community.

    Join the fight against cancer today. Event volunteers play an important and exciting role in making the Jimmy Fund one of New England's most prominent and successful charities.
