Welcome to My Personal Page
For the first time in history, we can imagine stopping cancer in its tracks.
Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) is a groundbreaking initiative created to accelerate innovative cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now. SU2C is bringing together the best and the brightest researchers and encouraging collaboration instead of competition among the entire cancer community.
I am asking that you join me in the fight against cancer by making a donation to Stand Up To Cancer. We draw our resolve from those whom cancer has taken, those still in fight, and those who have triumphed over this disease.
Racing For a Cause:
I've always possessed a strong desire to help those in need, and I am a firm believer that it is our social responsibility to give back as frequently as we are able. A few years ago I competed in my first triathlon race, and was immediately hooked by the experience. The challenge was exactly what I was looking for, and the reward of crossing the finish line provided instant gratification. As my passion for endurance racing grew, I recognized there was an opportunity for me to fundraise for all types of charitable organizations. Combining my interests of fundraising and racing, I have found the perfect way to give back through setting a fundraising goal with Stand Up 2 Cancer.
I will be racing in the Maytag Ironman Steelhead 70.3 race on Sunday, August 9th. This will mark my first time competing in a race of this distance, and I couldn't be more excited for the challenge that awaits me. When I hit the water on Sunday morning, not only will I be competing to reach my personal goal, but I will be competing for the millions of people that benefit from Stand Up 2 Cancer's mission of bringing an end to cancer.
Why I Stand Up:
I stand up for the millions of people around the world that are affected by cancer each year. I lost my paternal grandparents to cancer, and have seen other relatives fight and win the battle. I stand up for everyone involved in the fight against cancer, from the elementary school fundraisers to the scientists tirelessly searching for a cure. Above all, I stand up for the belief that we can make a positive change and beat cancer.
Thank you all for your support.
