Seattle Times letters to the editor

Former QFC CEO plans bike event to benefit Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Co-sponsors are supportive

Regarding Nicole Brodeur’s column “Stuart Sloan rides for life” [NW Arts&Life, March 10]:

What began as a wonderful story about an amazing man and a truly worthwhile cause, suddenly angered me at the categorization of co-sponsors as “[Sloan’s] highfalutin’ co-sponsors …”

The adjectives that come to my mind are generous, committed, supportive. I doubt that any cancer patient who benefits from this effort would agree with the description.
