Why organize a Jimmy Fund event?

There are lots of reasons to organize a Jimmy Fund event. Whether you are paying tribute to a family member, friend, or colleague who has cancer; you have your own personal connection to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund; or you just want to get your family and friends together to have a great time, each event goes a long way in supporting compassionate care and cutting-edge research as well as the search for cancer cures.

What kind of support can I expect from the Jimmy Fund Special Events team?
