Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International agent, PX Head, races to save lives!June 4, 2010
PX Head, a University of Georgia grad, decided to try to challenge himself and do some good at the same time! By participating in an endurance event as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training, he is raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives.
PX will be running in the San Diego RNR 1/2 Marathon on June 6th.
PX has witnessed first hand the sadness and pain of family friend Brennan Simkins — an 8-year-old currently battling Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). He felt joining the Leukemia Society and running a 1/2 Marathon was a natural fit. “Brennan is a remarkable young man and has been incredibly brave and courageous throughout his nearly year-long bout with the illness,” says Head, who has been training for his first ever endurance event since January.
PX has a goal of raising $4,000 for this wonderful foundation and all those who struggle with the disease. As to his fundraising goal, “donations of any size are welcome. Seriously anything is fine; lots of $5 and $10 donations add up quickly! Thanks so much in advance for your support,” he says.

Best of luck PX!
