As much as I like science (doing science or reading about it) I also like running. Luckily running and thinking are quite complementary activities so I do not see the time I spend running as something detracting from my work. Since I arrived to +Moffitt Cancer Center in the summer of 2008 I have participated in a charity race called Miles 4 Moffitt.
|Miles for Moffitt|
This event, organised for +Moffitt Cancer Center, raises money for local cancer researchers. I know a few of my colleagues that applied and received some of that money and I know how much it helps junior researchers at Moffitt to get a little bit of funding so they can test new ideas that would go untested otherwise. This year I am not only running but also trying to raise a very modest sum of money for this cause.

Some of my friends and colleagues at Moffitt's IMO are also running and they could do with your help as well:
