Help me on my 64th as I walk 26.2 for the Jimmy Fund

Hey everyone,


      So, yes, the Beatles song has been much on my mind as I approach Year 64 of my time on this planet ("Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm 64?").

      As I discovered for the first time last year, there's no better way for me to celebrate my birthday than to walk for the Jimmy Fund. Last year the walk fell on my actual birthday, September 24. This year, it's a day earlier, which means I'll probably spend my b-day soaking my feet, but it'll be worth it. So many of you were generous in your support of my stroll last year, which kept me moving on what turned out to be a ridiculously hot day. The pictures and stories that the walkers pass along the way are also incredibly inspiring, and moved me to want to do this again.

    We all are touched by cancer in one form or another, and what Dana Farber does, especially for the youngest among us forced to deal with this dreaded adversary, is incredible. So here I am, asking for your help again. I know the asks tend to accumulate, and understand many of you are already supportive of the Jimmy Fund and other noble causes.

     But if you have a few extra bucks to pledge my way as I hoof from Hopkinton to Boylston Street, I would be deeply appreciative, and thank you from the bottom of my heart. That would be the best birthday present I can imagine. Plus, you can always make side bets on whether El Gordo can finish two years in a row.


    Thank you all, and I promise to finish what I start. And one day, we will indeed defeat cancer.

        Gordon
