A number of my friends and people close to them participate in fundraising races, always for A-list causes. I’m a proud supporter of both their philanthropy and athleticism. Laura Kalehoff, wife of marketing genius Max Kalehoff of BuzzMetrics fame, is raising the bar not just for fundraising but for marketing communications relating to her upcoming race. Here’s a note I just got from Max:
My wife, Laura, is training for her first marathon to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Many, many thanks to all who have sponsored her in this important fundraising event for cancer research. To keep all our friends and family updated on her progress, she’s started a Web log – See Laura Run, at www.seelaurarun.blogspot.com – which will have weekly updates on all her training and adventures leading up to the big May 7 race in Vancouver. Please visit her blog frequently and feel free to leave feedback in the comments section! She promises lots of pictures and dispatches from the trails!
