On Sunday, September 11, the Cancer Support Community is partnering with the Events DC Nation’s Triathlon for our 2nd annual Team CSC event. We wanted to introduce you to two team members who are back for their second Team CSC triathlon event. Meet these incredible and dedicated triathlon participants with some short Q&As!
What event(s) are you doing in the triathlon?: All three
Have you ever participated in an endurance event before? If so, what?: Many over the last 20 years.
Are you participating in honor of someone? If so, who? Many friends, too many, sadly, to name.
What motivated you to participate in the Nation’s Tri with the Cancer Support Community Team?: I helped start the team last year.
Added info: The Team is basically a result of my efforts in pulling people together last year and this year and engaging my dear friend and coach, Julie, to work with the team. I work as a consultant to CSC and am thrilled to be a part of the team again!
What event(s) are you doing in the triathlon?: Olympic Bike Relay
Have you ever participated in an endurance event before? If so, what?: Yes, I have participated in many organized bike events both for charity and not. Cycling is a passion of mine, and I am always in search of a new adventure in riding.
Are you participating in honor of someone? If so, who? All my family and friends whom I have lost due to cancer and those family and friends who are cancer survivors - grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends, all too many to mention.
What motivated you to participate in the Nation’s Tri with the Cancer Support Community Team?: My connection to CSC goes back to when I worked for the organization, during which time I was also diagnosed with cancer. This ride is that much more special this year as I am riding as a cancer survivor on behalf of other survivors.
Anything else you’d like to add?: Hope is one of the greatest gifts you can give to a cancer patient, even if you think you have nothing to give.
