The Jimmy Fund and BOND construction of Everett have joined forces in the fight against cancer through a special Facebook ‘Fan-Raiser” campaign to increase awareness and funding.

The 10 day campaign, to acquire 5,000 new fans of the Jimmy Fund’s official Facebook page was met with overwhelming support from the Facebook community, and quickly surpassed the goal of  5,000 fans only a few days after the launch. BOND construction, of Everett MA, had committed to donate $25,000 to support the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s goal to enhance care and expand programs for survivors of pediatric and adult cancers.

The successful Facebook challenge, helped increase awareness about work and care provided by the long-running New England charity and Dana-Farber to help cancer survivors live longer, happier lives – a mission that BOND shares with many Jimmy Fund supporters throughout the world.

Founded in 1948, the Jimmy Fund is an official charity of the Boston Red Sox and supports the fight against cancer at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, helping to raise the chances of survival for children and adults with cancer around the world. The Perini Family Survivors’ Center at Dana-Farber offers tailored care for survivors of both adult and pediatric cancers, helping them access post-treatment follow-up care, including counseling and monitoring physical and psychological effects of treatment.

BOND is the finest fully integrated building, civil, utility, and facilities asset management construction firm in the Northeast. For 103 years the locally owned firm has been serving many of the region’s best known academic, health care, corporate and energy/utility clients.
