This summer, I’m helping Fred Hutch stop cancer and COVID-19.
And I need your support !
Summer will look really different for all of us this year, but I’ve found a way to make the longer days and warm weather really count: I’m participating in Obliteride. I’ll get outside (keeping a safe physical distance from others, of course) and sweat it out to raise money for lifesaving research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
And even though I’ll do my activity by myself, I won’t be alone. I’ll be joined in spirit by many people from their locations around the country and world — riders, walkers, runners, and other participants who are ready to take action by supporting prevention, treatment, and cures.
I’ve accepted this challenge because now, more than ever, the world needs Fred Hutch’s fearless science. The Hutch has made some of the world’s most important medical advances — from developing bone marrow transplantation as a cure for leukemia, to pioneering powerful therapies that harness the immune system to eliminate cancer, to creating advanced diagnostic tools that detect cancer in its earliest and most treatable stages.
And today, as we face the new threat of COVID-19, the Hutch’s virologists and infectious disease experts are confronting this global crisis with their hallmark creativity, collaboration, and unshakable focus. By expanding testing capacity and developing treatments and vaccines, these extraordinary scientists are committed to ending this pandemic.
Private contributions from supporters like you fuel this leading-edge research. Every dollar you give this year will power Fred Hutch’s frontline cancer research and advance real-time work on test, treatments, and vaccines for COVID-19.
Please donate today and join me in putting cancer and COVID-19 in their place: behind us.
