EVENT: Stomp the Monster Events
EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2017
In 2014, I learned to swim so that I could finally participate in triathlons. Since then, I have competed in more than a half dozen races, including the Waterman's Half Distance Triathlon. When I completed that race, I said I would NEVER do that distance again. But, you know you should "never say never."
I decided to join STOMP THE MONSTER INC in the fight against cancer. And my part of the journey is to raise funds while competing in Ironman 70.3 Atlantic City. I have many loved ones who have been touched by cancer. I know the efforts to care for a cancer patient can be extremely taxing emotionally, physically and financially. Stomp the Monster is one organization poised to aid in these efforts.
STOMP the Monster makes a difference in the lives of cancer patients when they need it most – during their battle with the disease. Founder Seth Grumet, Ironman and Marathon finisher, father of 3, and husband, founded STOMP the Monster while completing his own cancer treatments in 2010. When he saw how many people don’t have the daily support they need to make their treatments and healing process easier, he set out to help.
STOMP the Monster™ is a 501(c)3, not for profit organization who provides financial and other support to cancer patients, their families, and caregivers, including transportation, gas money, food cards, assistance paying bills, and much more. The organization promotes a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise, and promotes funding for potential advances in prevention and treatment.
