Want to donate? Please read her message below.
Last week I lost my grandma, Ellen Reaves, to a long battle with lung cancer. My grandma has always been such a big supporter of my weight loss and fitness goals. She was so proud of me when I did the Lake Tahoe bike ride last year. This year, Jason and I are racing our first triathlon and now we will now be racing in my grandma's memory. One of the great things about the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is that they believe a cure to blood cancers will lead to a cure to all cancers, including the lung cancer that my grandmother had. We would greatly appriciate your support in finding a cure to all cancers!
Jason and I are also racing in honor of Kat Hollowell. Kat is the best friend of Jason's sister Brianne. They became friends at a young age when the families were living in the Bay Area. Kat was diagnosed with Leukemia as a child and is a survivor. Now she is married and just had her first child a few weeks ago.

We will also add a sponsorship section showing which leg of the race you are supporting us through!

40k Bike - $40
10k Run - $10

We've really been enjoying our experience so far with swimming, biking and running. Last Tuesday I got past a big wall with swimming and swam 1500 meters! This Sunday we are having our first open water swim at a lake and we get our wetsuits! Jason also sees the biggest improvements with swimming as well. He says that he can now breathe on both sides and doesn't get out of breath. We've also seen some of the most beautiful scenery on the East Coast, including parks and creeks in DC that a nice get away from the city.
Being a part of TNT has also helped Jason and I make new friends with similar interests in our new environment! Thank you so much for all your support along this journey. We will keep you updated with our training efforts!
