Seeking Sponsors

Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund WalkI am walking 26.2 miles (on the same route as the Boston Marathon) to support cancer research on September 12, 2010.

This is a fundraising event  for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, an organization that provided me with the utmost care and support over the last year. In addition to treating patients, the institute conducts research to improve its care and develop alternative treatments that are less invasive and poised for greater outcomes for all types of cancer.

The folks at Dana-Farber, particularly the nursing staff on the infusion floor, are genuinely good people, fulfilling a role that I couldn’t bear on a daily basis. For this reason, I am pleased to support their fundraising efforts, and will soon learn what it feels like to walk 26 miles! I’m pretty sure that I have never walked or hiked more than 13 miles in one day- I think it will take about seven hours, unless I miraculously turn into a conditioned runner!
