THE STORY:

Not so long ago, I was working on a particularly difficult transaction that was not going particularly well.

Now if you know me, a tougher transaction generally means that I am extremely calm, dignified and patient.  

But for some strange reason, I was irascible, and extremely high strung. This was bringing out the worst in me.

And I was dealing with a competitor counterpart – Chris Pilat. Somehow, he stayed strong, steadfast and resolute. And he dealt with all the issues in an amazingly graceful manner.

The transaction did not happen – but we formed a deep friendship. And a few years later he became my colleague.

And then I learned that he had been battling through cancer during the entire time that we were trying to get the deal done.

He cared enough about the transaction to work on it while dealing with much more important things in life.

Fair to say, I have been fairly impressed since then. And turns out he had a very incredible and helpful support system.

The cause.

Immerman Angels is a charity that is focused on providing one- on- one cancer support. It connects caregivers, cancer fighters and survivors and works on ensuring that no one faces cancer alone.

My promise

So I pledged to raise money for this charity by doing something that I like – running a marathon even though it remains a generally miserable experience from mile 2 to mile 26.2.

 

And the competition..

Make no mistake – I am still competing with Chris. I told him that I am going to beat him in the marathon by about half hour even though I have not trained for it. I am also intending to outraise him on charity even though I started later than I intended to. This is a bit of friendly wall street rivalry for a good cause and I do hope that you can help.

 

Thanks in advance for being patient with this request and your consideration.
