After watching my Sister-in-law Danielle and the other amazing women participate in the 2017 Tri for the Cure I got the bug. I was so inspired by the stories of survivors, the enthusiasm of the crowd, and the overall theme of how powerful women are; I knew that at some point I wanted to be part of the experience. I feel very fortunate to be participating in the 2018 Tri for the Cure as part of a relay team with my Mother-in-law Ann and Sister-in-law Danielle. I will be running 3 miles for my team, and for all of those affected by cancer. I'm hoping that by participating in an event like this that I'm teaching my own daughters about "girl power" and the importance of helping others.
Support me in the fight against cancer!
This year I'll be participating in the 11th Annual Maine Cancer Foundation Tri for a Cure. Maine Cancer Foundation is committed to reducing cancer incidence and mortality rates in Maine, with 100% of funds raised by the Foundation used to benefit the people of Maine. They lead a state-wide effort to advance the most promising and effective cancer-fighting efforts available through a combination of grant-based financial support and coalition building. MCF's Challenge Cancer 2020 initiative is working to reduce cancer incidence and mortality in Maine 20% by 2020 through prevention, screening and early detection, and access to the highest quality care for every Mainer.
Every dollar counts! Please consider a donation. Cancer tries but we TRI harder!
Please help me to reach my goal of $1000. Donate in honor of a loved one; donate for a wonderful cause; donate for good karma. Whatever your reason and amount you will be helping to fight cancer. Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.
