$7,500 Raised… $5,000 To Go

0

With support from friends and colleagues in the domain industry, my 2019 Pan-Mass Challenge fundraiser passed the $7,500 mark this morning. All of the money raised goes to the life saving work at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, one of the most important cancer research and treatment organizations in the world.

For the last couple of months, I have been training for my 161-mile, 2-day PMC bike ride. On August 3rd, John Berryhill and I will leave from Babson College in Wellesley, ride 78 miles to Mass Maritime Academy, and then ride the remaining 83 miles on August 4th. The ride is not easy (especially with the Summer-time heat/humidity and occasional torrential downpours), but it is made easier because of the support we have been receiving from friends and colleagues like you.

I am really excited to share the final design for the 2019 Pan-Mass Challenge jersey that John Berryhill and I will wear when we cross the finish line and on our July training rides. The purple and pink jersey design won the voting by a slim margin of fewer than 10 votes. The winning design was created by the design team from our lead sponsor, XYZ:

2019 Pan-Mass Challenge Supporters

logoLater this Summer, I will be riding in the 2019 Pan-Mass Challenge to raise money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston. DFCI is one of the leading cancer organizations in the world – both in terms of cancer treatment and cancer research, and my family proudly supports it. Since the ride started, the PMC has raised over $660 Million for Dana-Farber!

This will be my sixth year riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge. With the help of supporters and friends like you, we raised over $50,000 for Dana-Farber and its Jimmy Fund in the first five years of riding in the PMC. My fundraising goal for 2019 is $12,500.

Beautiful Gift from a Reader

A couple of weeks ago, I went to my business PO Box expecting to see a few letters, a magazine or two, and an assortment of domain name renewal notices and other junk mail. When I saw the yellow slip in the box indicating a package awaited my attention behind the mail counter, my heart skipped a beat in excitement.

Wishing You a Merry Christmas

As the year is winding down, I want to wish those of you who celebrate a Merry Christmas. Hopefully you are spending time with family and friends and are able to stay away from work today (especially when you are bidding against me in an auction that closes today!) Kidding aside, I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas.

I hope you have been able to achieve your domain investing goals this year. There are a few days remaining in the year, so perhaps there are still deals to be struck.

Doing a Bit of Maintenance This Morning

Good morning! You may have noticed some CSS issues on the website last night and today. I am working with my developer to try and speed up the load time for the website and to optimize the viewing experience (for you and for me).

In the course of doing this maintenance and upgrades, the CSS is a little bit buggy looking and will be until this maintenance is complete. Thank you for visiting and thanks to the people who emailed me about it!
