BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: IRONMAN Race for Free 2014
Dear Friends and Family,
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This year I am marking a milestone birthday by participating in the Ironman 70.3 Princeton event in September. More importantly, in memory of my Mother who passed away from pancreatic cancer last year, I am raising money for STOMP the Monster ™, an important cancer charity.
Many of you have contributed to my previous efforts to raise money for cancer research through organizations like Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Cycle for Survival and Livestrong. Thank you! This year with STOMP the Monster ™, your money will assist people in need who are dealing with this horrible disease: a single mother working two jobs who's child is diagnosed with Leukemia; an elderly patient with no means to get to the doctor. STOMP the Monster ™ provides financial and other support to cancer patients, their families, and caregivers, including transportation, gas money, food cards, assistance paying bills, and much more.
Although I know a few peole who have successfully completed an Ironman event, I am still terrified. For those unfamiliar with a 70.3, it consists of a 1.2 mile swim (yikes!), a 56 mile bike ride and a 13.1 mile run. So, in addition to monetary support, I'll be looking for lots of moral support as I train all spring and summer. I thank you in advance for whatever support you can provide.
PS - For anyone who prefers to donate by check, please mail your donation directly to:
Stomp the Monster, PO Box 521, Marlboro, NJ 07746, Attn: Princeton 70.3
and please ensure my name is on the check or in the envelope. Thanks!

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.
STOMP the Monster™ is a 501(c)3, not for profit organization. We rely on the dedicated support of companies and individuals like you, who give their time and considerable efforts to raise money on behalf of the charity.
