Many of us have been walking every year, in memory of our dear friend and colleague Kai Lin and in memory and support of many other friends and family members. This year we are also walking to strongly support BMP graduate student Corrie Painter and her heroic fight to use science to battle angiosarcoma. Follow her story at http://jamforfries.blogspot.com/ or visit http://www.firstgiving.com/angiosarcoma
Please join us on Sunday, September 26,2010 for the 12th Annual Walk to Cure Cancer. The five mile walk-a-thon raises funds to benefit cancer research, equipment, facilities and world-renowned medical professionals at the UMass Memorial Cancer Center of Excellence. Now in its 12th year, over 50,000 walkers have joined the Walk to Cure Cancer and raised over $6 million.
Please make a donation or walk in honor of those who have been impacted by this disease, and help support the research that will prevent others from being affected. For more information visit www.walktocurecancer.org
We can make a difference…together!

PS: Because of the fabulous generosity of the BMP department, we've raised our initial fundraising target. We hope that this response continues and we reach this new goal.
