This weekend marks the 4th Keith Hamm Foundation fundraiser. It's a great cause and proof that every penny raised in the name of a cause can make a difference.
Keith Hamm was the life partner of Mark Miller, a senior leader here at Quicken Loans. When Keith succumed to cancer in 2006, Mark decided to celebrate his life with a party and a fundraiser.
To date the foundation has raised over $90,000 for lymphoma and leukemia research in Michigan. That's awesome and I'm glad I can do my part to chip in a little toward making that amount larger.
Cancer has touched everyone I know. My father died of cancer a year and a half ago. Several of my friends also have had loved ones die of cancer. Cancer sucks.
I salute Mark and the other volunteers who make the effort to help others. That's what this is all about. Celebrating the love of one great person by helping many other great people.
And that's a great thing.
The Keith Hamm Foundation 2010 event is this Saturday at the Rock Financial Center in Novi Mi at 7 pm. Come if you can. Ticket and event info is here. If you can''t make the event, consider a donation. It's a great cause.
