"Blythe Masters, JPMorgan Chase’s Global Head of Currencies and Commodities and Chair of the Komen Greater New York City Board of Directors, raised an extraordinary $161,950 for the 2006 Komen New York City Race for the Cure®. She is not only the highest individual fundraiser for the New York City Race but also, potentially, the biggest fundraiser for Komen worldwide."

  1. Fantastic cause - in a previous comment I alluded to a double standard among men and woman in the banking world (for which Blythe Masters has managed to break the ceiling - she must be a pioneer in this regard?). I do also think that equal attention must be brought to prostate cancer that has been so successfully done with breast cancer via organizations like Komen for the cure. Cancer is a terrible disease that afflicts so many of us - our families, friends and loved ones... So vitally important to find a cure so kudos to those of us devoting our energies to it.
