Tri-ing for Joe!
Organized by: Nicole Kennedy
I hate to even type this, but for the 3rd time in two years, my cousin Joe is battling non-Hodgkins lymphoma. His strength and resiliency have inspired Shawn and I to tackle a triathlon sprint in his honor on May 14th. In addition to dealing with the physical toll that this horrible disease and treatment take on him, he also has to worry about the financial toll. Joe's wife faces her own battle each day with a chronic illness that makes it impossible for her to work. I'd like to help lift the burden, even just a little bit, and show Joe, Athen and their son Matthew how much we're pulling for them. Shawn and I are working hard to make this Tri happen. Shawn - as you might guess - is working hard and getting competitive. I, on the other hand, am just hoping I don't make a fool of myself - nearly impossible with a Speedo, swim cap and goggles on! Donate a few bucks and we'll share pictures of the whole ridiculous thing. Thanks for your support of my hardworking, hard-headed cousin who refuses to let this disease get him down.
