On September 25, more than 9,400 participants and 1,000 volunteers worked to raise more than $8.3 million for compassionate patient care and innovative cancer research at Dana-Farber. Among them, were IFMA Boston volunteers, including Andrew Verderame, Diana Firestone and Jennessa Durrani.
Andrew Verderame leads the Community Projects Committee for IFMA Boston and was the site captain for IFMA members who volunteered at Refueling Station #3 on West Central St. and Boden Ln. in Natick. There were 12 refueling stations with all routes concluding at the Copley Sq. Finish Line where walkers received a commemorative 2016 Jimmy Fund Walk medal and had the opportunity to take a team photo, and celebrate with live music and food.
Volunteers are a vital part of the tremendous success of the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. IFMA would like to thank all who came out and hope to see you and more next year.
