Racing for a Cause

No, cancer is not funny, but Family Guy is.  

Sadly, I suspect that anyone reading this has in some way been affected by cancer; I personally (and my family) have been most affected by prostate cancer.  Fortunately for my family my father has received the best possible treatment and medical care and has been cancer-free for more than 5 years.

There are myriad reasons I am a triathlete - don't worry I won't bore you by listing them out - but one of the best things about racing is that every so often I can impose on my family and friends to help raise money and awareness for an important cause. 

As I have done before, I will once again be raising money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation.  For my first triathlon I raised over $2,600 for the PCF.  My goal for the upcoming Ironman Arizona (in addition to finishing it!) is to raise $5,000.

Please visit my Firstgiving page to learn more about my fundraising efforts and to make a donation.

Thanks in advance for your support and please share this with anyone else that might be interested in donating!
