On July 20, 1999 at the age of 44, my mother Jayne Button Douglass passed away after a nine-month battle with colon cancer. Exactly twenty years later on July 20, 2019 I will compete in the Nantucket Triathlon, my first triathlon which I would like to dedicate to my Mom. The race includes a .33 mile swim, 13.4 mile bike ride, and 3.4 mile run.
On this milestone anniversary, I would like to raise funds for the American Cancer Society in her name. Please consider donating to support me, honor my mom, and bring hope to all those who are fighting their own battles with cancer.
All proceeds will be donated directly to the American Cancer Society.
Mom, I hope I'll have your fighting spirit with me that day.
