Jimmy Fund 2017
Here We Go Again!
On September 24, Team Weston Nurseries will lace up our sneakers to walk along the famed Boston Marathon® route in the 2017 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai! We’ve pledged to raise funds that will be used to support critical cancer research and innovative pediatric and adult patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Last year our team raised just under $12,000 thanks to all your donations.
We have all been touched by friends and family that have been affected by this awful disease. Knowing the progress that is being made and knowing that we can help is what motivates our team here at Weston, and keeps us walking year after year. Please join us in the fight against cancer by joining our team or donating to our fundraising efforts.
Your support goes directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge science and highly compassionate care. Funds raised through the Jimmy Fund Walk enable Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve patients and their families.
Cancer touches all of us. We believe in doing our part to help conquer this disease and with your help, we can move closer to the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
Thank you in advance for your generosity!

The Tree of Hope
Directly on the route of the Boston Marathon®, as runners are cheered on by crowds this coming Monday, you will notice Weston Nurseries’ Tree of Hope. We have chosen a visible tree in front of our Hopkinton store to display our enthusiasm for the participants and hope for a cure for cancer.
Starting on April 15 through mid June, we will have ribbons available in our Hopkinton Garden Center. We invite you to dedicate a ribbon to honor your loved ones who have fought cancer.
A suggested donation of $5 per ribbon will benefit Team Weston Nurseries for the 2017 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai held on Sunday, September 24.
