Tennis star James Blake is getting ready for a huge charity event taking place on December 1st in New York. Blake vs. Roddick: Serving For a Cure is the latest installment of his annual fundraiser to benefit the Thomas Blake Sr. Memorial Research Fund.
James Blake believes that progress against cancer should never be hampered by a lack of resources. The Thomas Blake, Sr. Memorial Research Fund, founded in memory of his father, supports early detection research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering--the nation's preeminent cancer center. The Blake Research Fund invests vital seed money at the leading-edge of science: speeding the most promising work, and shortening the time it takes for discoveries at the lab bench to become better treatments at patients' bedsides. One hundred percent of every dollar donated to the Fund goes directly to cancer research - One Set, One Match, One Cure.
