October was a great month for hiking, and Lucy gets a well-deserved rest after trekking the 100 miles with me.

WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

Friends, family: A huge thank you to all who have donated to the Jimmy Fund and supported this effort. We've gone WAY BEYOND my initial goal, and for that I am more than grateful. My "70 by 70" hiking plan expanded to 100 miles, and as of 10/22, we made it, as my usual hiking companion Lucy can attest, above. I'm remembering especially four people close to me who struggled against cancer and have passed on: Connie, Ted, Delsie and Joan. Also thinking of friend John who has just entered the fray and is getting treated at Dana Farber. I tied my hiking goals into the Jimmy Fund because Dana Farber's where Ted received treatment, and their research and services for patients, and their enthusiastic crowd of volunteers, are extraordinary. Thanks for any support you can offer!

On  Oct. 3, I joined Cindy and Bob, Ted's wife and brother. for the official Jimmy Fund Walk day to hike along and around Rye Beach, NH. Cindy has her own fundraising page, so please check it out and help her reach her goal.  - DF
