“I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk.
I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
A few months ago I started to get the itch to train for something again, bad. I've looked up races in Alaska, but then I received the opportunity to partner up with a great cause just a few weeks after baby boy should arrive. I'm so excited to have something so meaningful to keep me motivated to walk as much as possible this late in my pregnancy.
The Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai has raised more than $100 million to support Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's lifesaving mission to conquer all forms of cancer in children and adults.
Join us on September 27th either in Boston or virtually. If you are in Boston you can choose between 4 routes:
- Hopkinton 26.2-mile
- Wellesley 13.1-mile
- Boston College 5-mile
- Dana-Farber 3-mile
All routes finish at the Copley Square finish area in Boston where walkers will enjoy live music and food. I wish I could participate in person! As I'll be approximately 3 weeks postpartum I'm going to aim for walking 3 miles, but who knows I may go well under, or over, that.
Get $5 off your registration, making it only $20 to join, using this code: BLOG. Register here.
If you decide to join consider joining as a fundraiser! Fundraising used to intimidate me but I'm always surprised at how generously people love to give to a worthy cause. Family, friends, and my blog friends always step up and pitch in when I let them know I'm working with a charity. If you raise $300 or more by October 31st they will mail you a t-shirt and medal!
