Make your gift on #givingtuesday

First there’s Black Friday, then Cyber Monday. I do my level best not to participate in either of those days, but last year a new tradition started that I can completely get behind. Giving Tuesday was started as a way to kick off the spirit of the holidays by establishing an annual holiday focused on giving.

I’ve got 139 more days until the marathon and my goal is to raise $10,000 total for Dana-Farber. I can’t do it without your help. So far, I’ve raised just under $1,200 from 14 very generous donors. In honor of Giving Tuesday, I’m asking for your gift. Every donation matters, no matter the amount. So many of us have had friends and family impacted by cancer and your gift will go directly to fund the most promising scientists researching innovative cancer treatments and making discoveries that have a real impact. Visit to make your donation today to support this awesome cause.
