Reading resident, Christina Ladany, registered for the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk to raise money for cancer research and to stop this deadly disease. “I am walking for myself and all that have/had cancer,” Christina explains. I have more strength now after the chemo and I am able to do at least the 5k this year.” This will be Christina’s first year walking.
I sat down with Christina yesterday to find out more about the Jimmy Fund Walk and what it means to be a cancer survivor.
To donate to Christina, please visit the following fundraising page:
The Jimmy Fund Walk has raised more than $167 million for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in its 34-year history. The 2023 Walk will be held during the Jimmy Fund’s 75th anniversary year and will aim to raise $9 million in the effort to prevent, treat, and defy cancer.
