BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: IRONMAN Race for Free 2014
I am a Board member for STOMP The Monster and have decided, this year, to throw my hat into the ring. Having completed my first 5k since HS at the 2012 STOMP 5k, I have gone on to complete several mud runs, as well as the Tough Mudder in Miami in 2013.
The 70.3 will be a great challange for me, and I am entering into it to honor my father, Frank W. LaRocca, who lost his battle with cancer in 2006. Dad never saw me get back in shape when he was with us. He will be watching over me in September and I hope to make him proud.

When you join the STOMP the Monster Team you will help make a difference in the lives of cancer patients when they need it most – during their battle with the disease. Founder Seth Grumet, Ironman and Marathon finisher, father of 3, and husband, founded STOMP the Monster while completing his own cancer treatments in 2010. When he saw how many people don’t have the daily support they need to make their treatments and healing process easier, he set out to help.
