CND's Doug Schoon Walks for a Cure
In June, Doug Schoon, CND's top scientist, walked nonstop for 20 hours along the California coastline, covering 45 miles in preparation for the San Diego 3-Day, a 60-mile walk sponsored by the Susan G. Komen Foundation to raise money to help fight breast cancer. The walk, which will take place in November, will be Schoon's eighth such fundraising walk. "I really like what the Susan G. Komen Foundation does for cancer victims and their families," said Schoon, "and I think the 3-Day Walk is an extraordinary, uplifting event. I do it to raise money to fight this terrible disease."
