Free Training for September’s Jimmy Fund Walk

Team core harmony is again gearing up to participate in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, September 18, presented by Hyundai. Those wishing to join the team are invited to take part in a free training program designed and supervised by Certified Trainer and Wellness Coach Debra Bennett.

“The Walk is an opportunity to honor family, friends, co-workers and loved ones touched by cancer,” says Bennett. “Whether you are a survivor, walking in support or memory of others, or you just want to get in shape and reduce the risk of getting cancer, this is a fun and positive event.”

The Walk is the only event, other than the Boston Marathon itself, to use the entire marathon route, with four start locations and a finish at Copley Square. Team core harmony walkers receive a suggested 12-week training plan for each of the walk routes, and a weekly lower body stretching and core training class from June to September at Shiva Shakti Yoga Center, in Waltham (ShivaShaktiYogaCenter.com). All ages and fitness levels are welcome.

The registration fee is $25 for adult walkers, who are asked to raise a minimum of $250 by November. Those unable to participate in person can participate as “virtual walkers,” with no registration fee.

Since 1989, the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk has raised more than $73 million for research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
