RCN Boston Ice Cream Truck Makes a Visit to Dana Farber Cancer Institute

Boston, MA - August 3, 2016 - To celebrate their partnership and dedication of the staff, RCN Boston’s Ice Cream Truck broke the heat with a visit to Dana Farber Cancer Institute to deliver frozen treats to approximately 1,000 caregivers, volunteers and patients on Tuesday, July 26. The visit from the ice cream truck continues RCN Boston’s commitment to bringing cheer to various nonprofits throughout the summer months.

“The visit to Dana Farber from the RCN Ice Cream Truck was a small token of our appreciation for the tremendous work that happens every day at this world class medical facility,” said Jeff Carlson, Sr. Vice President and General Manager of RCN Boston. “RCN is thankful to the caregivers and volunteers of Dana Farber whose hard work and dedication to their patients are second to none.”

RCN is also a Premier Sponsor of the 2016 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk on Sunday, September 25, 2016, that supports Dana Farber Cancer Institute. “The Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk raises critical funds for people affected by cancer in the communities RCN serves,” said Carlson. “Be on the lookout for the RCN Ice Cream Truck to enjoy a treat along the route.”

As a Premier Sponsor of the Jimmy Fund Walk, RCN Boston will be located at the Boston College 5-Mile start in Chestnut Hill. RCN representatives will be on hand to give out free fun items to walkers, volunteers and staff. The Jimmy Fund Walk has three other route options with separate starting locations: Center School in Hopkinton for those walking the full 26.2 miles; Wellesley High School in Wellesley (for the 13.1 mile route) and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s campus in the Longwood Medical area (3 miles.) Walkers will cross the finish line in Boston’s Copley Square, where the RCN Ice Cream Truck will be serving ice cream. To learn more, visit
