BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: IRONMAN Race for Free 2014
As many of you know, I have been involved in the sport of triathlon for several years. In 2012, I became an Ironman by racing in the inaugural NYC Ironman on August 11, 2012 as part of the STOMP the Monster ™ Team. This year I will be racing for STOMP the Monster in the Ironman Princeton 70.3. For those of you not familiar with an Ironman 70.3 it consists of a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bike, and a 13.1 mile run. It will not be easy and I will face many struggles along the way. My struggles, however, pale in comparison to the struggles that are faced by cancer patients and their loved ones on a daily basis. Cancer has touched all of our lives in one way or another and we all know its devastating impact. That is why I decided to team up again with STOMP the Monster to raise funds to support its worthy cause.
STOMP the Monster is a 501(c)(3) charity that provides financial and other support to cancer patients, their families, and caregivers, including transportation, gas money, food cards, assistance paying bills, and much more to help cope with the effects of this terrible disease. STOMP the Monster promotes a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise, and promotes funding for potential advances in prevention and treatment.

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 relies on the dedicated support of companies and individuals like you, who give their time and considerable efforts to raise money on its behalf. I ask that you help by making a donation on my behalf.
Contributions at any level are welcome. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
