As an ovarian cancer survivor, I will race in 50 triathlons in all 50 states by 50-years-old to raise $100,000 for ovarian cancer research. This campaign is self inspired, self orchestrated and 100% self funded. In addition, all in-kind donations are turned into cash donations by me in the same name of the person who donates. I race for women who have lost their battle, women undergoing treatment and women yet to be diagnosed.

Please help with even a $10 donation!

Little Is The New Big

This little town of Portage, Wisconsin has a big heart.  What a terrific day and what a great event.  I met some incredible people and the outpouring of support actually produced tears.  For starters, a big thanks to the race directors, Mike and Heather Frank, for a quality race, an introduction to a killer bike store and the local press, announcing my campaign over the PA more times than I can count, putting a donation jar at registration and then MATCHING those donations with a fat check to come home with.  Wildside Adventure hooked me up with a sweet sled.  Thanks to Peter and Joel for taking such good care of me. Thanks to Jen McCoy who did a good story on the campaign in the Portage Daily Register.  Click here to see it.  And a special thanks to all the folks of the community who made me feel so welcome.  Of special note are the survivors I met this weekend.  At today's race I met FOUR ovarian cancer survivors.  In a race of about 400, that's a pretty staggering number.  It felt so good to share this with my fellow "survivor sisters".  So state #41 is complete; I am officially in single digits.  Next stop, Arkansas.
