THE STORY:

Kerry Gruson wrote -

Join in to support Kerry Gruson and Caryn Lubetsky in their campaign to change attitudes about limitations when they compete in an ultimate endurance challenge, Ironman Cozumel on November 26, 2017 - ThumbsUp International's debut competition abroad. Although severely disabled by an attack more than 40 years ago, Kerry never allows the resulting physical handicaps to deter her from embracing life's adventures. She's become a racing sailor, scuba diver and most recently, a dedicated endurance athlete. With Caryn, her ablebodied teammate and the cochair of ThumbsUp International, the history-making all women team will tackle the 140.6 mile race, their second joint Ironman and the fourth for Caryn. The team personifies ThumbsUp International’s motto: "Together, We Can!". To experience their message's life-changing impact, please watch 'May I help you?', an award winning short documentary. It features some of Kerry's past endurance races, including the duo's dramatic first IRONMAN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s07-OaAA2M8&sns=em. Your contribution will be used to defray the expedition's costs, also as seed money for a film about this epic effort. Expenses include equipment upgrades, vital to the success of such an ambitious undertaking and the registration fee for a Halfironman training race. Shipping of the team's equipment alone will top $2,500. Thank you and thumbs up, always! Caryn and Kerry
