Once again, I plan to don my overpriced sneakers, train all winter, and run 26.2 miles on Patriot's Day, to raise money for a patient advocacy group I've had the privilege of getting to know, First Descents. Three of my colleagues from ARIAD will join me, and together, TEAM ARIAD will try to raise $20,000 to support First Descents. I've been invited by First Descents to join them, and the cancer patients and survivors they advocate for on a week-long outdoor adventure sometime in 2013. In 2010 I raised $10,000 for the Komen Foundation and the MMRF. Help these 43-year-old knees do it again. This may be it, as I can barely do 5 miles as of now. Happy Holidays, Happy New Year, and Happy Running!
