LITTLETON – Police Chief Matthew Pinard is pleased to share that he is participating in the 2021 Jimmy Fund Walk to benefit cancer research, and also to show support for a fellow chief who was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year.
The walk is taking place on Sunday, October 3. Though the walk usually follows routes along the Boston Marathon course, walkers will be empowered to choose their own locations this year due to COVID-19.
Chief Pinard will be joining the Middlesex Chiefs to walk the streets of Pepperell in honor of Chief David Scott. Chief Scott is currently battling stage four colon cancer.

Box 3595, Boston, MA 02241-3595.
“Cancer likely will affect us all in some way throughout our lives. Personally, cancer has affected my family on more than one occasion,” said Chief Pinard. “I am doing my part to help conquer this disease and with your help, we can move closer to the ultimate finish line; a world without cancer. I invite you to consider making a contribution of any amount toward my fundraising efforts, and thank those who have already helped exceed my initial goal. Each donation has a big impact on this universal cause.”
