Off Topic: Please Support My Cancer Walk

Over the last ten days I’ve written daily tweets with the following reasons why people should donate to my Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk (in support of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute):

  1. Cancer sucks! The battle needs all of us.
  2. You can easily go with one less latte every week or so.
  3. The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is a great place.
  4. One less suffering child, one less mourning parent.
  5. Enjoy being a part of something so good.
  6. Look at these kids (http://tinyurl.com/jfheros). They need your help.
  7. What would it hurt to go out for hamburgers vs steaks for one night?
  8. It takes more than courage to beat cancer.
  9. What else were you planning on doing for the next 5 minutes?
  10. In memory of victims, in honor of survivors, and in hope of a cure.

For the past several years, my son and I have participated in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk to honor the memory of my sister, Susan Cutler, who died of cancer when she was only 38. For the upcoming walk on September 13th, we have even more reason to participate. During the past year, my wife’s cousin Neil Webber and our nanny for more than 10 years, Iris Plunkett, lost their battles with cancer.

Unfortunately, cancer is a disease that touches too many people. That’s why I’d love your support for my walk; every dollar gets us one step closer to a cure.

The bottom line: Thank you!

I'm an experience (XM) management catalyst; helping organizations improve results by engaging the hearts and minds of their employees, customers, and partners. I enjoy researching and speaking about leading-edge XM topics. I lead the Qualtrics XM Institute, which is the world's best job. We're igniting a global community of XM Professionals who are inspired and empowered to radically improve the human experience. To achieve this goal, my team focuses on thought leadership, training, and community building. My work is driven by a set of fundamental beliefs: 1) Everything starts and ends with human beings, so you need to understand how people think, feel, and behave; 2) XM is a discipline that needs to be woven throughout an organization's entire operating fabric; and 3) Building the XM discipline requires a combination of culture, competency, and technology.
