"And Scott in just a moment. But first we have a very important halftime guest to introduce you to. I think all of us know here in New England for that matter around the country. What the Jimmy fund is. Zachary Blackburn is the director of the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. This is A great event. It's It's occurred now. 31 years on DH. It began in 1989. Zachary is the director. Exactly. Blackburn. Welcome tonight Side. How are you? I'm doing Well then. Thanks for having me. So this year in the in the in the era of Corona virus. Everything is a little bit more challenging. But you folks are up for the challenge, and you will. Pull together Jimmy Fund Walk this year. A virtual Jimmy fund walk. Explain to us how it's gonna work this year. That's correct. Yeah, and you know, year you couldn't be more right. Certainly things have been topsy turvy around the world and You know, One thing that we wanted to do is give our walkers our donors. Our patients our you know our constituents and opportunities still support an event that's been around like you said. For 31 years of being your 32. The best way that we thought that we could do that was to provide a virtual type version of the Jimmy Fund. Wa For folks to be able to, and we use the word virtual. Very, very loosely. The Jimmy Fund walk your way, so we're encouraging people to walk in there way. However, they see best. From a safety standpoint, from a health and fitness standpoint, walk in your own neighborhood. Walk in your communities walk on a treadmill, but do so safely do so socially distance. And still be able to participate in this wonderful event that raises you know millions of dollars each year for Dana Farber. So if there was still for the virtual walk this year is going to take place on October. 4th does it. Do you have to do the walk on October 4th or system flexibility? It is absolutely flexibility with it, And I think that's one of the really important aspects of the YourWay portion. And the name there. We were encouraging people to walk on October 4th. We're gonna have a great weekend of virtual activities over Over Zoom and over the on our website and some live streaming and things of that nature on October 3rd and fourth with the walk happening on the fourth, but we won't be able to walk whenever they can. If they're you know, commitments in their lives, you know, forbid them for being able to walk on on October 4th. Hey, walk on October 3rd walk on October 11th the next weekend. Whatever is convenient for you. We will provide the tools and we will make sure the American you need to have a successful. How much did you raise last year? And what do you hope to do this year? That's a great question. So last year we raised with the Jimmy Fund Walk just over $8.8 Million, which is just incredible is the largest single day fundraising walk in the country, which is really, really something we're proud of this year. Obviously, things are a little different. Andi, We're doing our best to make it much of that 8.8 million back up again. We will be a little short but our goal this year eyes to raise her on $5.5 million in it. Cold chill in this time. This is what How do we get them to? Ah, You still got a couple of weeks here. So if folks want You ready for the walk? What? Who did they contact? How did they get involved? Sure, the best way to do so is going Jimmy fund walked out order and you can register right there online. And all the information's on the walk all information and getting the material that you'll need. It's all there on the website. Definitely the best way to do so. And people can register right up through Sunday, October 4th. So we typically have to shutdown registration early when we need to get ready for Ah, in person event, But for this We welcome everybody right up through walk day and even beyond if people want to register afterwards and do a walk later, you know they could do that. That's great. Exactly Thanks very much for a spend a few minutes with us tonight, and hopefully some of the night side listeners.

Scheme I, know that there's a lot of expectations for you in particular especially coming off. Of your forearm injury and. Everything else you are one hundred percent, and ready to go yeah I'm good. To go no no stopping no nothing good to, go, and then, the last thing about that last interview, of brandy Jacob said the introduced me. To a phrase that I will never forget during the interview it was getting them cheeks I've been using that. Now do, you think it sounds weird coming from me you know like Brandon could say. Just rolls right off the I'm like getting them cheeks Does, it all depends All right so this, camp after, last year I mean last year. Was just a mess. We all, know that I mean. That's not the giants, it's not giants football and now you've got a. New regime in here how easy is or what are some of the things that you have to do to be able to turn the page and get into this year with a? With, a clean slate honestly just messing with the new players that we have. Here, turning to page now looking back from last year and just move over the new guys that we have here now and get an understanding that we had to play football and that the note saying. We hit a win I always felt like in the NFL playing us a three four defense was the toughest thing that we had handle from an. Offensive pass protection situation how does that affect US safety is much different for you back there with the different scheme and different players required to do different things mostly Outside Linebackers as. Opposed to defensive ends none is for me and this. Is quite the same we have a person that's going. To set the edge we have a person that three tech. And stuff like that so Maybe we be shifting gears and we have line. Bekker's gaps Edessa helpless and in that category is Jane. Becher is your new events coordinators energetic as everybody says he. Is Very very easy makes. Us excited to come here and practice and just practice for him make. Sure we get everything right perfect and we have, no blowing issues talking to Landon Collins of word I keep. Hearing, and reading is aggressive that this defense is really aggressive I'll is that true in how is it aggressive its aggressive because we come in from each and every way honestly I was saving almost sending. Almost five each and every down and honesty is is gonna, is gonna. Hit because you never know where. It's coming from because we lined, up, in so many, different positions And it's just fun Because last year, I mean that books but, this is saying is is like everybody's going to be keyed on different things in we messed up Alana's account every time we And. That's that's a hard thing and that's still the multiple, facet of being a three four defense who's in the past Russia was. Not in the pass rush how do you tie up a running back and keep them from going out in the in the in the past routes? And things of that nature I would think, that you're frustrating your offense but at the same time you're watching some pretty special. Athletes on your own offense give me your impressions of saquon Barkley is, too good to be true or is this? Kid really the real title I will. Say he's really real deal I sat to one time, he spent everybody's.
