September 21, 2014, The Jimmy Fund will be hosting their annual walk to raise money for cancer research. The walk will take place on the Boston Marathon 26.2 mile route. Proceeds from this event enable leaders at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to apply funds to promising new research opportunities.
SMART’s IT Manager, Mason Snyder and his wife Stacey have dedicated their time for the past 7 years to raising money for the Jimmy Fund. Above all they participate in honor of their dearly departed friend Janna Paster. In September, SMART’s Community Awareness Team will host a cookout to help raise funds toward the cause. All SMART Associates and nearby businesses are encouraged to attend. More details will be announced soon! If you would like to donate but cannot attend the cookout fundraiser please visit http://www.jimmyfundwalk.org/2014/masonsnyder to contribute.
