It is hard to believe it has already been four and a half years without my amazing mom. I still miss her so much!
Due to COVID, I skipped a couple years of races/fundraising, but I am making up for those missed ones by doing at least three races this year. I have already done the Lake Monteciello sprint triathlon and the local Road and River Relay. In August I will be doing one of my favorite races, the Luray Triathlon. It is a beautiful course. I will be doing the Olympic distance which is 1500m swim, 25.5 mile bike, and 6.1 mile run. In September I will also be doing the Buchanan Tri in mom's hometown.
Every race I do is for Mom, I know she is always so proud of me. In addition to racing in honor of her this year, I am also racing for Peggy, my stepmom's Mom who we lost way too fast to an aggressive brain cancer.
I am raising money for The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke. This is where Mom was treated for 9 years after she was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2009.
The funds raised will support cutting-edge brain tumor research. At Duke, ground-breaking lab research is translated into treatments for patients more quickly than anywhere else. Your gift will give Duke's investigators the resources needed to push their research efforts at a much faster rate.
I am asking you to help by supporting my fundraising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will make a difference in the lives of many!
If you would prefer, you can also mail your tax-deductible contribution (make checks payable to: Duke University - Angels) with my name in the memo to the following address:
Tisch Brain Tumor Center-Angels
DUMC Box 3624
Durham, NC 27710
I greatly appreciate your support! Together we can make a difference!!
