Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk Volunteer Opportunities


The Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai is made possible by the help of our dedicated volunteers. With opportunities ranging from Walker check-in, handing out snacks, and cheering along the route, volunteers are vital to the success of Walk Day.

Sign up today and join over 800 other Jimmy Fund supporters and defy cancer through volunteerism. This group makes it all happen and we couldn't be more grateful.

The 2024 Jimmy Fund Walk will be held on Sunday, October 6, 2024.

Shifts are available for Early Check-In at Wellesley High School on Saturday, October 5 and Walk Day on Sunday, October, 6.
