Shameless Plug

28 Mar

I just finished my taxes (yay!) and the whole arduous process got me thinking about the ol’ dollars and cents.  Specifically, donating some of them.  My dear friend Erika:

here she is

is running the Boston Marathon to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  Girl has been training in the worst winter I can remember for quite some time and is going to rock come Marathon Monday.  So.  Give her some monies!

The money goes to the Cluadia Adams Barr Program in Innovative Basic Cancer Research which supports a number of different research projects that all work towards finding new ways to kick cancer’s ass.  Nobody likes cancer.  And, it turns out that cancer is not only good at gobbling up people’s bodies, it’s also good at gobbling up research money.  The Dana is doing some good work, and hey, it’s a tax deduction, right?

Erika has been working so hard to raise money, which may be even harder then training for the actual marathon.  Sometimes asking people to hand over their money can be hard.  This is not one of those times.  I have no problem asking people to donate money to cancer research.  Cancer sucks and without research like the good folks at the Dana are doing I’d personally be shit out of luck.

Chris and I will be there in Boston when Erika runs, so I’ll try to get some awesome mile 21 agony action shots to post so you can see your dollars at work.  Any amount you can give is great.  Again, here’s the link.

Thanks, guys.
