It is organized and staged by event and media professionals in one of the most sophisticated metropolitan areas of North America. You may discover the James Joyce Ramble may well reflect your company’s own demanding standards for excellence and high production values. We promise to work hard to enhance your image and marketing strategy while you support a human rights and charity-driven event.

Our educated, affluent, socially-involved, active participants and audience represent your market, your values and your community.

Since 1984, the James Joyce Ramble and partners have raised in excess of $500,000 on behalf of the Claudia Adams-Barr Research Program located at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

All proceeds from the “Take A Walk” are donated directly to this account and we hope you will support this portion of the event. Partner opportunities are available here too.

We look forward to speaking with you. Call Martin at 781.329.9744 or email [email protected]

Volunteer Opportunities

As you may know if you have participated in the Ramble, this may be one of the most ambitious grassroots-driven events in the country. Every aspect of the Ramble is organized by a dedicated group of volunteers who bring a wide range of skills to the table.

If you “get” what we attempt to accomplish with this race each year, perhaps you would consider being a part of it.

You can be as deeply involved as you want to be, or just help for several hours with running registrations, set-up, security, food, course marshals and any number of other tasks. The crucial week before the race, with registrations on Friday and Saturday and with event set-up simultaneously occurring at the Endicott Estate is particularly busy.

We can promise you that you will be rewarded with a positive and unique experience and we will treasure your support.

Please contact us by phone 781-329-9744 or by email [email protected]

Joycean Performer Casting Call

We seek performers to read the works of the race’s namesake along the race course. Each mile is named for a literary work by Joyce. Time commitment is about two hours. You will be asked to dress in some classic turn of the century garb. We provide a Joycean book for you to keep. Oh yes – you do get a fine looking shirt as well as food and beverage.
