Join me in helping to kick Cancer's ass.
My family has seen more than its share of pain and death caused by Cancer. In 2004, Richard Mordarski, president of GlasCraft Inc., a friend and President of a division of the company of which I was CEO, died of Pancreatic Cancer. In 2008, Rosalie Cohen, my mother-in-law died of Lung Cancer. In 2009, Morton Cohen, my father-in-law died of Pancreatic Cancer. In 2010, my brother-in-law Carl Cohen died of Colorectal Cancer. In 2011, Stuart Schreiber, a talent agent extraordinaire who helped find a replacement for Richard and became my good friend, died of Pancreatic Cancer. In 2012, my cousin Lauren Levin died at 55 years old of Breast Cancer. In 2013, my cousin Martin Levin died at 54 of Lung Cancer. Many other friends of the family are either cancer survivors or are still battling Cancer. Sadly, I am sure Cancer has also touched most of you as it has touched us.
Joanne, Noah, Zach and I have raised money before to help fight Cancer. My company organized a fundraiser for Cancer research in 2005 in memory of Richard Mordarski. In 2010 at 13 years old, Noah, in honor of his Grandmother and Grandfather, raised over $5,000.00 for a cancer charity while covering 50 miles on his bicycle.
For the past two years, the Cleveland StARTup Collective sponsored by Drummond Road Capital, has been one of the top 10 fundraising teams, raising over $400,000 for cancer research.
For those of you unfamiliar, VeloSano is a national fundraiser that will allow individuals and teams to raise money by cycling for Cancer research at Cleveland Clinic. Because of the generosity and vision of Velosano founding partners, one hundred percent of the money raised by VeloSano’s riders will go to Cancer research at the Cleveland Clinic. I am going to ride at 200+ miles over two days. If you can't ride, I hope you will consider supporting those of us who do by clicking on the DONATE NOW box to the upper right and making a donation.
