Registration open for the 36 annual Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk

A few months have passed since the 2024 Boston Marathon, and now it’s time to prepare for the other Boston Marathon event of the year: the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk.

Registration is now open for the 36th annual Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, presented by Hyundai. To register or support a walker, click here or call (866) 531-9255.

The Jimmy Fund Walk 2024 (also available online as #JimmyFundWalk) will take place on Sunday, October 6.

The Walk is a fundraiser to support all forms of adult and pediatric care and cancer research at the nation’s premier cancer center, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Those who register before June 30 will receive a Jimmy Fund Walk drawstring bag.

Registrants can enter the promo code NEWS for $5 off the registration fee. All registered walkers receive a starting number, medal and a Jimmy Fund Walk T-shirt.

Walkers can choose from four walking distances: 5 km, 10 km, half marathon and marathon. Each walk starts at a different location, but all routes at the Finish Line Powered by Schneider Electric at Boston Common, corner of Charles and Beacon Streets

The finish line location has been changed from its usual location due to ongoing construction work at Copley Square.

There are gas stations with refreshments along each route. Walkers of all distances will be motivated by patient posters or “Jimmy Fund Walk Heroes” placed throughout the route.

The finish line includes a party with food, entertainment and more. Public transport is encouraged.

Participants can register individually or as a team. Volunteers are needed to encourage participants, serve snacks, hand out T-shirts and more at the four starting locations, along the course and at the finish. To register as a volunteer, click here.
