Dr. Pelly Chang participated in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai. This event has raised more than $110 million for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s fight against cancer since 1989. In 2016, more than 9,000 walkers and 1,000 volunteers worked to raise more than $8.3 million for compassionate patient care and innovative cancer research at Dana-Farber. Dr. Chang walked with the MDS Miles and Smiles Team as a Women in Dentistry Committee
member. She has raised $2,900 for the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Center as 2 starts pacesetter. Dr. Chang joined the MDS Miles and Smiles Team which consisted of 55 walkers including Dr. Janis Moriarty and Dr. Lisa Vouras, also ICD fellows. The team raised more than $71,000 combined! Fifty percent of all funds raised by Dr. Chang's team will support Head and Neck research at Dana-Farber! The other 50% of funds raised will go towards the most in need at Dana-Farber.
What a great way to give back to the community! Great job Dr. Chang!
