Billy Starr is a crook and the press continues to give him a back rub instead of holding him accountable. He siphons near $2 million a year from what would otherwise be an amazing program. If the PMC were truly run by a board they would fire him and hire someone for a 1/10 of the price. But he has stacked the board with family and cronies.

The PMC is a remarkable organization, event and community and is the backbone of Dana Farber.

It is easy, Billy starr set up a company so that he does not have to revel his compensation. Addtionally, he has his family working for the PMC or Starting line enterprises ( his company). Billy starr has used the PMC as his own check book and to be honest, he has done pretty good for a truck driver. This is a scam

This small organization raises money for cancer research. They give the full amount of the money raised by the athletic participants. That being said, the head of the organization made over $500,000 in 2008 and over $1,000,000 was paid to a company owned by the head and employs his wife. Not impressed and will not support.

Amazing charity - 100% of donations go to Dana Farber for cancer research and patient care. All administrative costs are covered by corporations

I believe that this is a scam and the money goes into Sen. John Kerry's campaign fund or otherwise and does not advance cancer research. At best, a small portion goes for treatment, but only for those who do not have health insurance, and don't qualify for medicare, medicaid, Obamacare and are not independently wealthy and have been otherwise turned away by hospitals. I don't know who is in this group, maybe illegal aliens or morons. I checked Jimmy Fund on Guidestar.org, which has detailed information on thousands of charities and Jimmy Fund is not even listed.
