Who Is He: Hi, my name is Mike! I live in Seattle with my wife, Mary.
My 2012 Goal: Spread awareness and raise money for multiple cancer charities.
How I'm Going to Do It: Run! I'm going to run in various events around the area, leaving a trail of awareness and (hopefully) money in my speedy wake.
My first one is the Mercer Island Half Marathon for Colon Cancer awareness. I'm running this race in honor of my late mother-in-law, Julie Rowe. This round, I'll be raising money for an organization that helped her so much—Washington Colon Cancer Stars.
How You Can Help: Donate to a great cause! My goal is to raise $500 for Washington Colon Cancer Stars, an organization that saves lives by expanding awareness and treatment services for colon cancer.
