BENEFITING: Livestrong Foundation
EVENT DATE: Jun 24, 2012
I hate cancer! Everyone does though, right? For those of you that know me personally, you know I've seen what this horrible disease can do and the devastation is can cause. I have personally seen cancer eat away at a person until their ability to fight is destroyed as it makes is last claim on a body. I've heard stories of friends as they struggle to understand how a healthy person in their thirties can be struck and taken away, often with little or no warning. Together, we can work to put an end to this disease.
Many of you who read this, may only vaguely know me from Twitter, Google + or Facebook. If you're a "virtual" friend of mine, you're interested in some of the same things I am...triathlons and other endurance sports. I'm lucky that I'm healthy enough to be able to participate in these events regularly and I thoroughly enjoy pushing myself. While I get great satisfaction out of this, it's been purely a selfish gratification that I received for accomplishing what I had set out to finish.
