The Big Climb

Thank you to everyone who donated to Light the Night 2022. We raised almost $23,000!

Next up is the San Francisco Big Climb which takes place on April 29, 2023 at Oracle Park. More details on how to climb with us soon. Need a few more 2022 donations for tax purposes? No time like the present. :) My (still to be customized) fundraising page for the 2023 Big Climb is here.

As of this morning, we are 92% of the way to our $100k goal for Salesforce HQ to raise $100k for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk.

So close!

The San Francisco walk is this Thursday, October 18th in Union Square in San Francisco. Festivities start at 5pm and the walk begins at 7pm.  If you want to join our team or still wish to donate you still can via these links:

  • San Francisco team page (join us!)
  • My page (I have raised over $21k - my goal is $25k)
  • Lunch with Marc contest (sfdc HQ/SM employees, please see the Light the Night Chatter group in the 62 org for details)

There are a few other Bay Area Walks (info here) and hundreds of Walks all over the US. Wanna walk in your city next year?  Go for it!

Championing this effort has been an incredible experience.  It's been really cool to see everyone rally for such a good cause.  I hope to see some of you out there this Thursday. And don't fret Giants fans, there will be a big screen in Union Square to watch the game during the pre-walk festivities.

Anyway, no real update for me wrt my health, so I guess that's good.  My appointments are down to every six weeks (were: twice a week; once a week; every two weeks; every three weeks; once a month; and now every six weeks.)  Still on Tac, Acyclovir, Fluconisole, Gleevec, and Septra for meds, but can hopefully start tapering soon.  I haven't weighed myself recently, but some of my pants are getting snug.  I think the days of "eat whatever I want, whenever I want, as much as I want" are over. Range-of-motion seems to be increasing ever-so-slightly.

One noteworthy item: I've been riding my bike to the ferry more often.  Twice a week last week and probably twice a week this week.  Also, since they opened the stairs in Landmark, I've been walking up to the 7th floor (from the lobby) at least once a day.  Feels pretty good to get the (non-cancerous blood) flowing.

And of course, a blog entry wouldn't be complete without one picture.  Here's one from a couple week's ago at Brandon's place.  We actually do get a bit of an autumn season in San Rafael:
