This was Danny’s fifth year walking in this colorectal cancer fundraiser. Although Danny had throat cancer – he supports all cancer fundraisers because cancer is cancer and we’re going to find a cure for this terrible disease by pledging a few dollars towards research! The research will probably save you or someone you know – just as it saved my life!
This year’s walk was on Sunday, June 9, 2019, at Jericho Beach Park.
Here are a few video clips from the walk: Push for your Tush video clips
