BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
ORGANIZER: American Cancer Society
EVENT: Tough Mudder Seattle 2017
My brother, JD, was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer in 2016 despite the fact that he has never smoked and was in better shape than 99.9% of the people I know. He continues to beat the odds, winning his fight against cancer every day by not just surviving but truly living. Up until his most recent complications he was still going to the gym regularly and still would be if the doctors let him! I, on the other hand, work behind a desk every day and when I get home I want nothing more than to sit on my butt and watch TV while eating pizza and drinking soda. He has inspired me to want to be better and live a healthy life for myself and for my family. If you know me, you know that this Tough Mudder is not something I would typically do...I've never been a big runner - but I'll work my butt off to make it happen for JD. This fundraiser and event is for him, along with all the other people and families hit by cancer that want to stand strong and punch cancer back - right in the face!
