BENEFITING: Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
In his time, H. Kirk organized some pretty successful stunts. Some involved scaring sleepover party participants while they wore mud masks, impromptu dances to the Stones, grill lessons, calendar-making, and watching the sun rise. We want to create a new stunt in his honor-- to get a group of his friends together for a fall walk/run/bike to raise funding for cancer research.
Because we still love him.

"...It is a very lonely feeling to be fully aware with the knowledge that we all pass. Youth itself is somewhat eternal but people never own it. I want to look at them with that bravado and ego but I am now more defined by my scars...Very strange.
Little things...are joys of existing. I also think little stresses like work and relationships, money, etc., are joys. But I love listening to my friends and thinking about their lives.
...I'll leave you with some things I read everyday lately."
"Look at the swift approach of complete forgetfulness, and the void of infinite time on this side of us and on that, and the empty echo of acclamation.
All this visible world changes in a moment, and will be no more; and continually bethink thee to the changes of how many things thou hast been a witness."
