Walk & Talk With Me on Powell Street at #JPM18

JPM is right around the corner. You are probably packing your calendar with one-on-one meetings, programmed events, and evening receptions. So am I.

But this year, I’m adding a fun new wrinkle.  I’d like you to join me.

Let’s start with the basics:

  1. I need to train for the Everest Climb to Fight Cancer at Fred Hutch.
  2. San Francisco has steep hills.


  1. I will be bringing my heavy training backpack to San Francisco, filling it with jugs of water, and carrying it up Powell Street alongside the cable cars Jan. 7-10.

Donors to the Fred Hutch “Climb to Fight Cancer” campaign can join me for a brief “walk and talk” at JPM. We’ll take our picture so I can recognize you on social media for your support of cancer research. And you won’t even need to break a sweat. (I don’t expect you to walk all the way up the hill in your business attire … unless you want to.)

Walking & Talking in Seattle with Nancy Simonian, CEO, Syros Pharmaceuticals.

Every day, I’ll be starting these “walk and talk” workouts at the corner of Powell & Geary, in the middle of the biotech financing frenzy.

Here’s when to meet:

  • 2 pm, Sunday Jan. 7
  • 11 am, Monday Jan. 8
  • 11 am, Tuesday Jan. 9
  • 12:30 pm, Wednesday Jan. 10

There’s no need to RSVP. Just show up.

This is going to be fun. Take a break at for the “Walk and Talk” at JPM. Get a little fresh air, get the blood flowing, have a photo taken, and support the quest for cancer cures.

Make your tax-deductible donation to Fred Hutch HERE!

See you in San Francisco.
