I know everyone is focused this year on the COViD crisis. Our lives have been affected in ways that no one thought possible. The one thing that has not been affected by Covid is cancer. Cancer continues to claim the lives of family, friends and loved ones. As you know, cancer and cancer research is a subject that has affected my life. I lost both parents and my wife to this disease.
For that reason, we are lacing up our sneakers again on October 4th.
This is the seventh year that TEAM FIGHT FIERCE will be participating in the Jimmy Fund Marathon wall. As you might imaging, 2020 will look a little different. This year the walk is a "walk your way". This YouTube video will help explain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXk6Lm4zmBE&feature=youtu.be&utm_source=email&utm_medium=buemail&utm_campaign=WKBUEM060120&s_src=WKBUEM060120&s_subsrc=WKBUEM060120.
We will not be walking the Boston Marathon route this year due to this crisis. Instead, we will be walking the streets of our local neighborhood. This year on October 4, we will plan two routes from my house in Worcester. One route will be approximately 13 miles and one will be approximately 3 miles. It will start and end at my house.
We will have a Zoom meeting in a few weeks to go over the details.
I know some may still be concerned about COVID. If you're uncomfortable or concerned you can "walk your way" on October 4 and still be part of the team. Please Join us and continue Kassia's fight. Thank you.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
