Today, I want to say thank you.
Thank you to the biotech community for your Incredibly Generous support of the Kilimanjaro Climb to Fight Cancer.
You have enabled us to reach our goal of raising $1 million this year for lifesaving cancer research at Fred Hutch.
Who are we? We are a team of 28 biotech executives and investors. 14 men and 14 women. We’re from all over the country. Boston. San Francisco. San Diego. New York. Michigan. And of course, my hometown and Fred Hutch’s hometown, Seattle.
We are united by a passion for science, for the outdoors, for pushing ourselves physically and mentally, and by a desire to help others in need. In July, we will all meet in Tanzania to climb Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. It’s 19,340 feet above sea level.
Thank you so, so much for supporting all of us.
This is the most exciting time ever for cancer research.
I can’t wait to see where the science takes us.
