Pan-Mass Challenge Heroes #15: Steve Sherlock

This is an ongoing series profiling some of the people I believe to be the real heroes of the Pan-Mass Challenge: the sponsors who donate their money to fund cancer research.

I have just $1,300 left to raise as I write this, but I can’t get there without help from more people like these Heroes. Please considering joining them by donating any amount to

Steve Sherlock

Steve is simply one of the nicest guys I have met in my association with Podcamp Boston. If you go to one of the events, he is the guy in the tri-corner hat, and one of the few people doing a lot of the work but not getting recognized nearly enough for it. If it weren’t for people like Steve, a lot of things simply would not get done (though a lot of us would sure be talking a lot about it).

Steve has multiple blogs, but his main online hangout is Steve’s 2 Cents (, where he is currently writing about his current job search efforts, sharing the tips and tricks of using social media to find the next position.

More from Steve:

– Why did you sponsor me in the Pan-Mass Challenge?

I appreciate your participation in this worthy cause and want to help.

– How did you first hear about the Pan-Mass Challenge?

I heard about it several years ago from one rider who I met at Fidelity with whom I also shared a passion for soccer. Over the years, I have found a number of other friends taking part and contribute to their efforts.

– Are you giving in the name or memory of someone you know who has had cancer?

Not to any one individual. Unfortunately, I have too many to chose from. I lost my mother and her mother many years ago, and several members of the extended family have passed on with one of the variations of cancer.

– Name one interesting fact or story that makes you unique and interesting

The story behind the tri-corner hat is one conversation connecting New England’s heritage and learning events like PodCamp that can go one for sometime. I have written it up here

Steve, thank you for sponsoring me. And thank you, everyone who has supported the Pan-Mass Challenge in any way. Please consider joining Steve Sherlock to sponsor my ride and fight cancer: Please feel free to pass the link to others as well.

  1. Steve is one of the nice guys of the blogosphere. He’s as genuine and giving in person as he is online, and I’m not surprised he’s sponsoring you for this. If more people were like Steve, this world would be a MUCH better place!

    Thanks for profiling him in such a good light. Great guys like Steve Sherlock are rare ones indeed!
