Did you know that every 4 minutes one person is diagnosed with a blood cancer? By the time you finish reading my webpage and decide whether or not you can donate, one more person will be affected with a blood related CANCER.

Every time I have decided to run a Marathon, I have had a reason to continue fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Whether it was a personal connection or someone else's family member or friend.

This year, two members of NorCal Kayak Anglers (an online community of fishing/diving buddies) are battling Cancer...Mooch and Shicken (or as my daughter says: ShickenMooch! ShickenMooch!).

Also a very good friend of mine, Robert Okumoto recently found out that his Lymphoma has come back....

The number of people affected by cancer continues to increase, and the least I can do is raise some $$ and run a few miles to show my support!!

I will be training to complete the 26.2 mile Mayor's Marathon in Anchorage Alaska on June 18th, 2011. Along the way I hope to raise as much $$ as possible for Cancer research!!

One thing I learned early on in my training was that the research done by the LLS, not only benefits blood related cancers such as leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, myeloma, but all types of cancer as well.

Please help me make a difference by making a donation.

Every dollar counts... it all adds up!!

Your words of encouragement are also welcomed!

If you have a personal connection to the cause please let me know so I can include their name on my race day jersey.

Here are the names of some of the people I am running for:


Luis Bocanegra +

Sandy Burton +

Mac Keene +

Bob Dowling +

Scott Scott +

Jimmy Campbell +

Judy Stobbe +

Marina Cook +

Stephen Pass +

Glenn Stockwell +

I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!
