BENEFITING: *Stand Up To Cancer
I am racing 10 triathlons in 2017 to raise money and awareness to stop Prostate Cancer now. My father was diagnosed with Stage 4 Prostate Cancer in July 2016. He hadn't had an exam in years, and was ignoring the signs and symptoms, brushing them off as it's just part of getting old or hemorrhoids. Turns out he waited too long, and now the cancer has metastasized in his bones. He is getting the best of care, his chemo is going well, and his outlook is promising, but he would be in a much better place if he hadn't ignored it for so long. My goal is to race my way to $5000 to donate to advance research and increase awareness to make men aware of how and when to get screened to stop prostate cancer in its tracks!
