A few weekends ago, I attended the Extra Mile Brunch as a 3-Star Pacesetter, meaning that last year I raised over $5000 for the Jimmy Fund.

We’ve completed 26.2 for another year in honor of Sean. The team, on the whole, has currently raised $12,981 for The Jimmy… Continue reading And Just Like That, It’s Over.
A couple of weeks ago, two representatives from Team Collier were invited to the Jimmy Fund’s Hero Match Party at Dave & Buster’s in Woburn, as we’re participating in the Hero Match Program this year.
