John, Boston, and Cancer Research

John Schick is a friend and frequent runner/volunteer in the Bellingham running and triathlon community.  A wonderful guy.  This winter, John is raising cancer research funds for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in conjunction with his training for next year’s Boston Marathon. John is specifically dedicating this effort to his father.  His father was diagnosed with cancer this year. 

I too have had persons close to me diagnosed with cancer in the last few years.  It is a terrible thing on so many levels.  John has looked into the Dana Farber Institute, and speaks highly of the organization. 100% of the funds raised go directly to research.

Please consider making a donation in this holiday season.  Here are some of his links, with more information:
