In true Starbuck fashion, Katee Sackhoff swooped in with the donation that pushed Bodie Olmos' fund-raising total for the American Cancer Society past $8,000. Mr. Olmos is running the L.A. Marathon in the morning in conjunction with the fundraising. It is his first and he'll be running the
20K 20-mile course; the race starts at 7 a.m. Pacific.
Ms. Sackhoff and Mr. Olmos both starred in Battlestar Galactica as viper jocks Starbuck and Hot Dog, respectively, alongside Mr. Olmos' father, celebrated actor and activist Edward James Olmos, who also was among contributors. BSG alumni Mary McDonnell, Jamie Bamber, Tahmoh Penikett, and scribe David Weddle also gave and were joined by a host of family (including Bodie's brother Mico), friends and fans offering their support to Bodie and the ACS.
At the time of this post, donations were still being taken, so if you'd like to join in please visit Bodie's Active.com donations page. Big or small, your donations are appreciated and needed.
Go, Bodie, go! Wishing you all the best!
Can I get a "So say we all!," Battlestar fans?
