I’m Obliteriding to cure cancer faster — and I need your support!
This August, beneath Mount Rainier, bald eagles, and an enormous orange banner, I’m joining thousands of people in Seattle to bike, run, walk, and raise money to obliterate cancer.
I’m doing this because I’m ready for a world where no family has to fear this disease. We’re making progress, but we have a long way to go: One in three people will still face cancer in their lifetime.
Every Obliteride-raised dollar goes to lifesaving research at Fred Hutch — and the Hutch won’t stop they have cures for all cancers. Already, researchers there are advancing breakthrough treatments, ramping up prevention and diagnosis, and bringing together the best minds in science, tech, and business to save more lives, more quickly.
This year, your support takes on special meaning for me, as my much loved “adopted dad” was just diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Those of us close to him are simply heartbroken, and I know we are not alone; it is the lucky few who have not been impacted by cancer. There is work to be done in making it a thing of the past. Please donate today and join me in putting cancer in its place: behind us.
