BENEFITING: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

EVENT DATE: Sep 30, 2017

DAYS TO GO: 72

Peter Igyarto

THE STORY:

Over the last few years, as many of you know, Christine and I have fought to achieve our dreams and live life to the fullest.  I have competed in two Ironman events with her being one of my biggest cheerleaders and certainly my top motivator.  She has been, and continues to be an inspiration to not only me, but everyone she touched.  As you may also be aware, Christines life on this earth was recently stripped by this horrible disease, And yet, like a true champion, she continues to inspire those around her through the soul touching fight she took head on. 

As a tribute to her fight, I will continue to raise money for St. Jude Children's Hospital, funding treatment and research for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases, in hopes that their families will transpire. 

Her reason: as hard as this plight has been on her, she could not imagine the struggle it is for children and their families.  The sickness that comes with treatment is unimaginable and something no child should have to face. 

  • St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. 
  • Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened 50 years ago.
  • It costs $1.9 million a day to operate St. Jude, and public donations provide more than 75 percent of their funding.

We have reached several milestones in this campaign thanks to the support and love of our friends and family, but we are not finished yet.  In 2017, I plan on competing in Ironman Chattanooga with my motivator In my heart and always by my side.  And although her battle is over, we still hold hope that sick children will have a chance at winning the battle no one should have to face.  We also hope these funds can get us one step closer to finding the cure.   We strive to become the IronPeople that are kiling cancer.
