“Team Reason” Reaches Milestone

The man who inspired it may be gone, but organizers of Team Reason say they will continue to honor the memory of Ron Smith by raising money for pancreatic cancer treatment and research at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, where Ron received his treatments.

“I think it is in Ron’s honor and on June’s behalf that we continue fundraising,” Team Reason founder Patrick Wynn told Maryland’s News Now.

Wynn said that as of Tuesday, Team Reason has raised $10,000 for the cause, but he says Hopkins officials told him that the phones were “ringing off the hook” with donors who had learned of Ron’s death on Monday night.

The money has been raised mostly through the sale of bumper stickers and car magnets, and through online donations.

Wynn said that the fundraising will continue into the new year.  He said a number of events are being planned for the new year.

Wynn said that it is too soon to discuss any specific events.

Pancreatic cancer is the tenth most common cancer but the fourth most deadly form of cancer.

“That’s¬†unacceptable,” Wynn said.

“If there is any way if we can be effective in helping the good folks at the Kimmel Cancer Center in finding indicators so that there can be early detection, that would be a huge victory.”

Donations will also be accepted Thursday and Friday between 5 a.m. and 9 a.m. at Valley View Farms in Cockeysville, where WBAL’s Dave Durian is hosting a special holiday edition of Maryland’s Morning News. The station will also be accepting sympathy cards or other items that listeners may want to send to Ron Smith’s family.
