The 2015 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk takes place on September 27. Some of Southborough’s loyalists to the cause have already set up fundraising pages. Here are three I know about.

Those of you I don’t know about, I encourage you to share your info/links in the comments below.

Publicists for the walk shared that mother-daughter team Stephanie and Sophia Jessiman will be raising funds for “Sophia’s Smiles” for the tenth year:

Sophia and Stephanie know the special bond mothers and daughters share. Sophia is a childhood cancer survivor and her mother, Stephanie, has been by her side through every step of that battle. They walk because they want other families to be able to celebrate and cherish those moments together.

In 2014, the charity shared their story – At the age of 20 months, Sophia was diagnosed with cancer. She received treatment at the Jimmy Fund Clinic. When Sophia was young, Stephanie pushed her in a stroller throug the Walk. Now a teenager, Sophia walks the full 26.2 mile route alongside her mother.

That year, the fund also honored Southborough pacesetter Dave Lemoine. Lemoine’s fundraising page shares that this September will be his 13th walk and the fourth as a member of “Frenchy’s Family & Friends” team: 

The walk is one of the highlights of my year. It’s healthy, friendly, meaningful and fun. Family and friends participate – some from as far away as Colorado! Virtual or actual walkers – it doesn’t matter.

What does matter is the work that Dana-Farber’s researchers and investigators perform. They are saving thousands of lives and improving the health of so many children and adults.

Be a part of our team. Join us in the walk. Donate to Dana-Farber. Keep the cancer fighters in your prayers.

Thank you for supporting Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.

I’m guessing there are more of you walkers out there.

Good luck to all of you.
