Watch out, tie wearers. Dena Battle is coming for you.
Dena is a former House staffer and lobbyist who is using her skills from the Hill for good. She started the Kidney Cancer Research Alliance, known as KCCure, this year to help raise money for kidney cancer research. This month is designated No Tie July — for each day you go sans tie, KCCure asks that you pledge a dollar amount to the cause on their website.
We chatted with Dena about KCCure and expanding #NoTieJuly to #NoPantsNovember. We also helped her track down some tie-wearing bad guys.
