T-Mobile's John Legere returns to the Boston Marathon, wants to raise $300k for cancer research
self-proclaimed Dark Knight wants to raise $300,000 to fund the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's efforts.
Legere's total goal is $2 million, out of which he's raised $1.2 million thus far by competing in previous marathons. This year, he'll be contributing $50 000 out of his own pocket, and is asking supporters to join his fundraiser.
The 56-year old CEO acknowledged that he hasn't been able to train this year and isn't in shape to complete the entire marathon - in "less than three hours", that is. However, he states that if he can "walk or crawl", he'll be "doing this." When it isn't directed towards other executives or being too radical, Legere's stubborn attitude can be quite respectable.
In T-Mobile related news, last week the "Un-carrier" began offering BlackBerry owners $100 towards a new mobile device (including one by the Canadians), while BrandIndex's charts praised the company's consumer-centric attitude. Although he hasn't kept in tip-top shape, John Legere has been busy with making T-Mobile a relevant carrier again, and it shows.
