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!

Thank You Maysville!

 A big thanks to Maysville, Kentucky for such a wonderful experience.  The Buffalo Trails Triathlon was sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and they pulled out all the stops to make it a really competitive and exciting event.  A tugboat pulled a barge into the middle of the Ohio River for our mass swim start.  Who gets to do that?  The bicycle portion of the race was some of the prettiest roads I have encountered and the run was along the sea wall of the river and couldn't have been nicer.  I had a radio interview before the event (click here) and a live interview at the race on WFTM.  I also had a great write up in the Ledger Independent.  But the real hospitality came from the owner of Moon River B&B.  Marti and her grandson, Luke, were some of the most pleasant people I have met on this journey.  I was so well cared for by the bike was delivered to me, I got a birds-eye view of the town from a woman who invited me to her home, I was bought a complimentary piece of Transparent Pie (a local treat), I received a guest pass into the Kentucky Gateway Museum (home of one of the largest miniature collections in the country) and was handed almost $200 in donations at the actual race.  I wound up getting on the podium for my division and also won the Perseverance Award.   Because of the press many women approached me and I was able to spread the message of early detection to dozens, challenging them to call five of their friends that evening with this vital information.  I think the campaign will have a big impact on Kentucky.  Kentucky certainly had a big impact on me.  Thanks Maysville!
