We Cycled, We Survived!

I knew curing cancer would be a pain in the ass, but this is ridiculous!

Team Comics Cure was in full effect this past Sunday at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center's Cycle for Survival. While the look on my face in the photo above suggests otherwise, it was a pleasure to take part in the day. 

The 2011 event has pulled in 4.2 million dollars for rare cancer research, with Comics Cure securing more than 3.3 (thousand) of that. But the fundraising doesn't end there! We've still got a corporate match pending for about a third of our monies raises, thanks to my wife's diligence raising donations at her job, and all Cycle for Survival team pages will remain open to donations through the end of March. If you were worried you missed the boat or feel guilty about leaving little old Matty B to represent the entire comic book community at the event, please visit or share our team page and make a donation.

Big thanks to everyone who took part in the event, especially those of you who gave your time and/or money to support Team Comics Cure.
