I am a 54 year old para athlete. Last year at this time, I was able to run for the first time since my accident in 2010 that caused me to lose the lower half of my left leg. I completed my first Sprint triathlon in June of this year. I will be doing the "Tri for the Cure" triathlon on August 8. It is a women's only event to raise money to support early detection and treatment of breast and ovarian cancer. I am wanting to raise money and awareness in honor of my sister who is a breast cancer survivor largely because of early detection of her cancer.
