I am one of the lucky ones today. My fight for cancer is for my friends and family. Not as personal but just as important.
My first intention was to just sign up for the 70.3 Princeton Half Iron Man. Pay my dues and be done. But by the time I got around to signing up the public entry was closed. I froze with panic and disappointment and logged onto the site for a plan B.
I read about this Stomp the Monster Team. I had found plan B and knew that if I wanted to participate in this race I had to do this fundraiser.
Founder Seth Grumet, Ironman and Marathon finisher, father of 3, and husband, founded STOMP the Monster while completing his own cancer treatments in 2010. He experienced first hand how many people didn't have the financial support that was needed to fight this nasty disease.
I do not personally know Seth Grumet but I know that he must be compassionate and must have a big heart. He found out first hand what the financial end can do to a person and or a family and he set out to do something about it. After reading about him and emailing back and fourth with he and his sister I was sure that I wanted to join this team.
And in joining this team I in turn need to reach out to my friends, my friends friends, and to my family to help me reach my goal of raising $2750. for this race/cause. I believe in it and hope that you do to. Please make a contribution through me to Stomp the Monster and know that you are making a difference is so many other lives that are fighting the fight that many of us only dread.
I am honored to be a part of this team and will be participating in recognition of all of you that have suffered or have known someone that has suffered because of this disease. On a more personal level I will be participating in honor of my grandmother, my aunt, my mom's best friend, and two of my very best friends.
