BENEFITING: AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
EVENT DATE: Sep 18, 2011
CANCER SUCKS! Did I say that with my outside voice? Yes I did and it does. Anyone who knows someone with cancer or lost a loved one to cancer will agree. I want to make a difference and raise money to help END CANCER NOW! Whether it's breast cancer, lung cancer, brain cancer, or prostate cancer, they all SUCK!
On September 18, 2011, I'm doing my second 70.3 Ironman race. It will be in Syracuse, NY. I'm racing in honor my father-in-law Jim "Jimbo" Nicholas. He had prostate cancer and won that battle, but he recently had a brain tumor removed and will start chemo and radiation treatment. He's never seen a triathlon race, so I'm coming to him in upstate New York.
This race consists of a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bike ride and a 13.1 mile run. My goal is to raise $5000 for the American Cancer Society. I'm suggesting a $70.30 (total number of miles) donation, but of course, feel free to donate any amount including $7.03, $703.00 or $7030!
Thanks for reading this and if you have any good tips for conquering some nasty hills on a road bike, please send me an email. Thanks again and let's END CANCER NOW!
