PINELLAS PARK - Jim Thomas, a retired Clearwater police officer and 23-year Navy veteran, hopes to collect $2,100 to fight breast cancer.

He will participate in a 60-mile walk over three days to raise money for the Susan G. Korman Breast Cancer Foundation and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund.

I made a resolution to do something meaningful so I will participate in the Breast Cancer 3-day Walk, Thomas said.

He noted that 40,000 women die each year of the dreaded disease. Little known is that about 4,400 men suffer from fatal breast cancer.

Thomas walks 10 to 18 miles during training sessions. He will walk the 60 miles to fight a disease that struck a loved one, but survived.

I have personally experienced the trauma of the disease and wanted to walk in honor of that loved one, Thomas, who did not identify him or her, said.

He noted that breast cancer is the leading cause of death among women, especially those between the ages of 40 and 55. More than 1 million Americans currently are afflicted with the disease.

Thomas said tax deductible donations can be mailed to him at 4495 49th St. #35, Pinellas Park, FL 33709. Online donations can be made under his name at www.The3Day.org.
