The past 5 years, North Kingstown has been home to a very special event. The “Jog for Julie and Dana Farber” fundraiser brings North Kingstown, Jamestown, and Southern Rhode Island families together to raise awareness for the work of Dana Farber in Boston, and to remember a dedicated mother, wife, and wonderful person who lost her battle to cancer – Julie Swistak Maloney. It has been a great honor to help promote as well as participate in this event over the past few years.
Here is more from the event page about this year’s event:
Our 5th annual Jog for Julie and Dana Farber 5K will be held on Saturday, June 16th, 2018. We are grateful for the families and individuals who come from near and far to contribute to the success of this family fun run/walk.
Each year we have had tremendous support with many contributing to the success of this very special day. Together we have raised over $150,000 for Dana Farber Cancer Institute. This event speaks of Julie’s strength, courage and her enduring legacy.
Julie died at age 43 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Julie was a Jamestown native and a long-time resident of North Kingstown, a loving wife, devoted mom, and good friend to many. As an expression of gratitude for the wonderful care she received throughout her battle, Julie’s family will continue to donate all net proceeds from the race to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
Julie’s family and many friends would like to thank everyone who will come out on June 16th to honor her spirit and legacy of courage.
