An MBA graduate of Northeastern University, Angelo Robert Santamaria has two decades of experience as a business leader within the global manufacturing industry, including an executive role with energy technology company American Superconductor. Outside of his professional life, Angelo R. Santamaria is a supporter of charitable causes like the Jimmy Fund, a non-profit organization that provides funding for cancer research and patient care at the Dana-Faber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts.

Every year in the fall, the Jimmy Fund asks its supporters to participate in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk in order to raise money for the cause. The event takes place along routes that span the entirety of the traditional Boston Marathon course, with four different routes ranging in distance from 3.1 miles to 26.2 miles to accommodate the needs of participants at all levels of physical ability. The event has raised almost $120 million for cancer research over the last 28 years.

The 2017 walk, sponsored by Hyundai, will take place on Sunday, September 24th. Participants over the age of 12 are required to fundraise a minimum of $300 before the day of the walk, while participants 12 years of age and younger must fundraise a minimum of $100. Those who wish to participate in the walk but cannot physically make it to the course have the option of registering as a virtual walker on the organization’s website at
