Team Microsoft & Friends welcomes all employees, contractors, and alums of Microsoft, as well as our family and friends. Come ride or walk with us this August 10 to help the Hutch cure cancer faster!

Honoring James Douglas

On March 29, Microsoft lost a long-time leader and great human being to pancreatic cancer after a diagnosis in November. James Douglas found ways to bring out the best in us through a unique blend of coaching, humor, and personal connection. He joined Microsoft in 1995. Over the years he played a key part in growing what is now our European Development Center in Dublin, Ireland and in growing Microsoft’s global business. We welcome everyone who knew James to join with us in supporting Fred Hutch in their efforts to create curative therapies for all kinds of cancer, especially pancreatic. There are several ways you can help. If you’re in the area on August 10 and want to do the 5K walk or ride one of the bike routes, you can join the team. Contact David Powell (david.powell -at- microsoft dot com) to get a registration code which makes participating easy. You can also join as a virtual rider, which needs no code, to help the team with fundraising; or you can simply contribute to the team or one of our riders. If you register to participate, you can choose to target pancreatic cancer in the sign-up process.

Obliteride is a chance to learn about the great work happening at the Hutch. This 2018 article in the Seattle Times covers a lot of ground about the Hutch in a quick read: https://www.seattletimes.com/pacific-nw-magazine/the-hutch-is-closing-in-on-a-cure-for-cancer/

Current Microsoft employees who donate to Obliteride can ensure donation Match requests get credited to the right team member by browsing to http://aka.ms/give, go to your Giving Portal, tap/click Request a Match now, search for cause "Obliteride", and in the matching donation web form, put the team and rider names in the Comments section as in "Please credit rider Satya Nadella of Team Microsoft". The Hutch gets a single big payment from Microsoft each month and a report; without something in the comments section of your match request, the program office doesn't know who to credit.

Fundraising is easy. Start by updating your rider page on this site. Add a photo, tell why you're doing Obliteride, then post a link on LinkedIn, Facebook, etc. If you're a current employee, you can leverage our fantastic Microsoft giving benefit by offering to match contributions from family/friends up to a certain amount you're comfortable giving. Each time they give, you give to your own campaign, then submit a match for your gift. You'll blow past your goal in no time and the Hutch can continue to do world-class research, education, and treatment for cancer!
