Jamaica Plain Residents to Participate in Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk

Five residents from Jamaica Plain will choose their own route on October 4th for the annual Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Participants are encouraged to walk wherever they choose: around their neighborhood, a local hiking trail, a treadmill, or anywhere else they are comfortable. Jane Craycroft, John Munson, Stephanie Kreutz, Madeline Polak, and Scott Schreiber, along with thousands of other walkers, will participate in virtual programming during the Walk that aims to recreate the most inspiring elements of Walk day. While the event will not physically bring walkers together along the famed Boston Marathon course, it will unite the community to raise funds to support all forms of adult and pediatric care and cancer research at the nation’s premier cancer center, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The event has raised more than $145 million for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in its 30+ year history.
