Walking for the Jimmy Fund (Please Donate!)

September 6, 2011 at 6:00 AM (Events, Goals) (, , , , , )

No point in beating around the bush: I’m walking five miles for the Jimmy Fund in honour of a colleague who was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) about a year ago and would greatly appreciate a donation from you – no matter how small. Cholangiocarcinoma is a cancerous growth in one of the ducts that carries bile from the liver to the small intestine. It, along with every other form of cancer, is a bugger that needs to be wiped out. The Jimmy Fund supports cancer care and research at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. To date, the walk has raised over $73 million, and I need your help to contribute.

I’m only about $30 away from my goal of $250. If the average of 18 people who read this post today donate just $5 each to my team, I will surpass my goal and tap-dance with glee. Of course, if you’re feeling more generous than that and wouldn’t mind donating a bit more, that’s awesome sauce, too. If plain old altruism just doesn’t cut it for you, perhaps some charitable purchases will convince you . . .

Do you like food? Or being pampered? Fancy that: I have a few deals that may interest you! Courtesy of goodtwo, you can buy a coupon for Club Cafe, G’vanni’s or Toscana, save some dough on your next visit, AND donate to my walk. Everybody wins! Details below.

Club Cafespend $25 for $50 credit toward food (Jimmy Fund receives $6.25).

G’vanni’s – spend $25 for $50 credit toward food (Jimmy Fund receives $5.00).

Toscana – spend $45 for $90 credit toward spa services (Jimmy Fund receives $9.50).

So, really, you have no reason to not donate. \Okay that’s not true, but I’m trying to make it as painless as possible. Thanks in advance for your help.
