Voices from The Scooper Bowl: Fighting cancer by eating ice cream

Ice cream. Kids love it. Adults love it. And it brings FedEx team members together to help raise money for The Jimmy Fund and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

FedEx has presented The Jimmy Fund "Scooper Bowl" for the past six years, with hundreds of team members volunteering to scoop ice cream to a hungry crowd of children and adults. The three-day, all-you-can-eat ice cream fundraiser holds a special place in many of our volunteers' hearts. Read why these people, all with a special connection to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, choose to volunteer their time and effort at this special event.
