Putting my legs where my mouth is

It killed my Dad when I was a kid, so I’m 100% committed to making cancer history–but I need your help to do it.

To raise money for cancer researchers, patients and caregivers, I will join 5,500 cyclists in the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC), a 200-mile ride across Massachusetts that raises money for research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DCFI). Dr. Sidney Farber founded Dana-Farber after he developed modern chemotherapy to combat childhood leukemia. Since then, Dana-Farber has continued to develop new treatments and cures for cancer, literally carrying their research results from the lab bench to the bedsides of cancer patients.

The PMC is the single largest donor to Dana-Farber and raises more money for charity than any other single event in the country–$375 million since 1980 and $37 million last year alone. That all came from donors like you, giving to make a world free from fear of cancer possible.

Because every penny matters, 100 percent of your donation goes to DFCI to fight cancer and care for cancer patients.

Together, we can make cancer history. Will you join me?

Over the last four years, we’ve raised $40,000 together to make cancer history. This year, I’ve again made a personal commitment to ride and raise $4,300. I hope you can help me achieve this goal.

I’ll do my part, training constantly to ensure I can complete the ride. While I’m doing that, please donate to my PMC ride at one of the following links:

Donate $25 to make cancer history

Donate $50 to make cancer history

Donate $100 to make cancer history and place a picture on my 2014 jersey.

Donate $250 to make cancer history and get a 2014 jersey of your own.

Donate $500 to make cancer history

Donate $1,000 to make cancer history

Every donation brings us closer by the mile.

P.S. – Your donation is tax deductible and 100% will go to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. If you prefer to write a check, please make it out to the PMC, The Jimmy Fund or Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and mail it to me directly (email me for my address).
