Jim Cormier Memorial Canal Walk for Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation
The family and friends of Jim Cormier are excited to announce the 1st Annual Jim Cormier Canal Walk for Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.
Our purpose is to raise money for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, which promotes awareness for the disease, supports research for therapies and a cure, and most importantly assists people affected by pulmonary fibrosis and their families.
Jim Cormier gave a lot of love to this world. He was a loving husband, father, uncle, godfather, and friend to many people. He had a life-long love of cooking and Julia Child. He had a long career in computer technology with Digital and then IBM. After retiring, he focused on his passion for teaching and became a Professor of Business Management at Boston University. He loved leading his students through courses such as project management professional (PMP!) preparation. Soon after joining BU, Jim was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) for which there is no cure.
Jim loved long morning walks around his neighborhood, about 3 to 5 miles a day. The Cormier family and friends could think of no better way to honor Jim than by having a walk along the Cape Cod Canal. Funds raised from this walk will be donated to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation to help find a cure along and assist those afflicted by the disease.
To register as an individual or as a team, please visit our Registration Page. Our walk has a $10/person registration fee which will benefit the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.
If you are unable to attend but would like to support our efforts please visit our First Giving page to make a safe and secure donation.
From the bottom of our hearts...THANK YOU!
The Cormier Family
