FAIRFIELD, Conn. — As fit as you may think you are, are you ready to work out next to an Olympic medalist?

Jessica Braus is.

The Fairfield resident will be in Boston May 6 to take part in a fun-fueled day of fitness at Jimmy Fund Fit Fest presented by Reebok at the Hatch Shell on the Charles River Esplanade.

Braus will take on consecutive, high-energy workouts led by some of Boston’s best trainers alongside six-time Olympic medalist and gymnast Aly Raisman.

Participants will also have the opportunity to win prizes, all while raising critical funds for the Jimmy Fund to support cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

“Join me for a fitness-filled day to support an amazing cause at the Jimmy Fund Fit Fest,” said Raisman. “Like so many others, my family has been affected by cancer, and I am excited to team up with the Jimmy Fund to make an impact in Dana-Farber’s important mission to conquer cancer.”

There is still time to get involved with Jimmy Fund Fit Fest. To register, contribute to a team or individual fundraiser or to learn more, visit .
