On July 8, a group of NBCUniversal employees will come together to race in the New York City Nautica Triathlon, an Olympic Distance race consisting of a 1500m swim, a 40k bike, and a 10k run. Along with our training efforts, we will be raising money for the charity Running Through Walls, whose mission is to promote wellness for children, adolescents, and emerging adults fighting their battles with cancer and life after cancer.
Please donate to this important cause. We'd also love to hear you cheering for the team along the course!
More about Running Through Walls:
We believe that pediatric cancer survivors are incredibly special and exude the very essence of the will to live. It is with great honor that we are supporting the clinical research, dedicated staff, and complimentary services established within nationally recognized hospitals focused on improving the quality of life for a survivor of childhood cancer.
In addition to our fundraising, Running through Walls will be working closely with selected programs to create a protocol that will marry existing oncology treatment with progressive fitness to aid in an individual’s fight against cancer and to ease their transition to wellness. This program is a long-term project that will be coupled with qualitative and quantitative research. The documentation acquired along the way will ensure that the best approach and program are developed for each individual patient.
Our charitable fundraising efforts will continue to raise money for individuals, groups, and institutions that are dedicated and committed to the treatment and cure of pediatric cancer.
