Donor Story

The one hundred honoree: Molly Rose Hurkett

Mass General Giving

While maintaining a 3.8 GPA, high-school senior Molly Rose Hurkett is a varsity athlete and team co-captain in three sports, a member of the National Honor Society, and a teacher and student of dance. She is also a young person who recognizes needs in her community and takes action to meet these needs.

In 2005, Molly and her friend Meaghan Finn founded Woburn Students Trying to Make a Difference, an annual fund-raising walk to support breast cancer research and patient care. The friends recruited other young women and developed an effective fundraising team who solicit sponsors, obtain permits and organize the annual event while also raising awareness of breast cancer among their peers. Their organization has to date raised $60,000, all of it benefiting the Gillette Center for Breast Cancer at the Mass General Cancer Center. Molly plans to continue her fundraising work while in college studying for a nursing career.
