Boston – City Point Partners LLC of Boston is joining the anticipated more than 8,500 individuals stepping out against all types of cancer in the nation’s most effective single-day fundraising walk on Sunday, Sept., 27, 2015 at the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk.
The Walk allows participants to choose among four route options: 3 miles, 5 miles, 13.1 miles and the full 26.2-mile Boston Marathon® route from Hopkinton to Copley Square. Walkers who are not going to be in the Boston area on Sept. 27 can also register as Virtual Walkers. Whether participating for themselves, loved ones, neighbors, or co- workers, each walker shares a common purpose: to raise money for adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund.
“City Point Partners is a proud supporter of the Jimmy Fund Walk. This year will be our fifth consecutive year supporting the walk and we are on target to reach our
fundraising goal for 2015. Over the past 5 years, we have raised nearly $20,000 and our team of walkers for 2015 is bigger than ever”, said the firm’s President Colleen Moore.
“Many people have had their lives touched by this disease”, continued Moore “and we at City Point Partners are looking forward to participating in the walk and doing our part in the fight against cancer.”
Walkers support one another as they join friends, survivors, caregivers, family members, medical professionals and celebrities. The walkers are treated to 12 refueling stations along the course as well as a celebration at the Copley Square finish line, complete with food, music, and a speaking program.
The Boston Athletic Association has supported the walk for 26 years as participants have raised more than $100 million for Dana-Farber. Funds help cancer care, treatment and ground-breaking research such as Dana-Farber’s unique personalized cancer medicine initiative.
