To keep our hotel guests and community safe, we're taking our Kimpton Marlowe Hotel fitness program, #RunWiththeGM, virtual and amping up the distance to support Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Join me, [Joe Capalbo, General Manager of the Kimpton Marlowe Hotel in Cambridge,] as I run a virtual half-marathon on October 3, 2020 at 9am. At that same time, you can walk/run (skip or jump) any distance virtually, from anywhere, to help stay the course in our fight against cancer.
With your participation and assistance, no matter how big or small, I've set a personal goal to raise $13,100 to support the critical funding needs of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, an organization that’s near and dear to so many of us. My Mom passed away from brain cancer on October 2nd twenty-six years ago, and my step mom is undergoing treatment for Leukemia at Dana-Farber now.
We’re so fortunate to have Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, which provides expert, compassionate care to children and adults and is home to groundbreaking cancer discoveries, here in our backyard.
The funds we raise together through this virtual #RunWiththeGM will help fund active clinical trials each year, offer personalized support and resources for patients and their loved ones, and support state-of-the-art facilities that bring effective treatments to patients quickly.
So lace up those sneakers and virtually run (or walk) with me on October 3, 2020, and be sure to post photos along the way and use #RunWiththeGM and tag @kimptonmarlowehotel on Instagram or post to Facebook here.
I’m hoping for every mile you run or walk, you can pledge $10.00 per mile. Please share this page with family and friends so that they can join me or if not, I'd be grateful for their donation.
My half-marathon may look a bit different than expected because of COVID. But miles are miles and fundraising for Dana-Farber is always something to feel great about.
