    Subject: this summer 2003, walk to fight cancer

    A walkathon to fight cancer, in Eddie's honor...read on...

    The idea for a walkathon benefiting the American Cancer Society surfaced recently on the the vhforums.com message boards in response to the VH online fan community's latest plot to bring VH back to life/get media attention/stir the shit: taking out a full-page ad in the LA Times asking, "Where the heck is Van Halen?"

    If VH fans could manage to pool up or raise the thousands of dollars necessary to pay for such an expensive newspaper ad, we think they ought to donate the funds to a good cause, rather than "giving" it to a media organization. We have chosen to donate to cancer research because so many of our friends and loved ones, not to mention Edward Van Halen, have suffered from the disease.

    We are now in the midst of contacting sponsors and just starting to publicize for the event to take place in Hollywood sometime during the summer of 2003.

    Stay tuned for the launch of an offficial website for the yet-to-be-named walkathon, and your chance to get involved.

    On behalf of the organizers,

    I wonder if that would even get a rise out of Ed. You would like to think so, but stranger things have happened.

    Great idea though. I think I would participate...

    First off, I want to see that this is a great idea. It will take a lot of work to pull it off but Van Halen fans being who they are, I have no doubts about it. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the event because my son's due date is March 20. Seeing that my daughter was 5 days early, I wouldn't be surprised if my son is born on 3/16.

    Eddie would notice if this was done, believe me.

    We appreciate your kind comments, people. There has been some grumbling on other websites about how Ed doesn't deserve this because he hasn't quit smoking. As far as I'm concerned , that's a lame excuse for not wanting to help a man that is very sepcial to us out.
    Furthermore, this whole idea is not simply about Ed, but for ALL of those that suffer or have suffered at the hand of cancer. We can choose to take part in this in honor of anybody we choose to, whether it is a family member, friend, coworker, or yes....Edward.

    Wolfman,I agree with you 100%. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] No one deserves to suffer these types of circumstances. We, every one of us, could be in those shoes by this time tomorrow. Do you have a child? Hold them tighter tonight, and think of their future.
    My wife's niece is in a fight with leukemia, which is not going well. She got the word at the age of (barely) 17.
    She is 18 years old.
    It's all point of view folks. As I said to JMJ, I'm definitely behind this idea, and we're ready to help.
