• Walking To Conquer Cancer

    On Sunday, September 22, Boston 25 is proud to serve as a partner for the iconic Jimmy Fund Walk.

    Thousands will participate to raise funds in support of all forms of cancer research and pediatric and adult patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. 

    Walkers can choose from four routes along the historic Boston Marathon course: 

    •    5K Walk (3.1 miles) from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute 
    •    10K Walk (6.2 miles) from Newton
    •    Half Marathon Walk (13.1 miles) from Wellesley
    •    Marathon Walk (26.2 miles) from Hopkinton

    Walkers are treated to refueling stations throughout the course as well as a celebration at the Copley Square Finish Line, complete with food, music, and a speaking program hosted by Boston 25's Mark Ockerbloom and Vanessa Welch. 

    Leading up to the walk Boston 25 News presented, "Quest For A Cure," a half-hour news special presentation featuring inspiring patient heroes, cancer survivors and medical teams working on the frontlines of new treatments and clinical trials.
