We are changing the course of cancer and our team is helping save lives!
For this race, we are going the extra mile (well, actually many, many miles) and we are doing it to help save lives. We have joined the American Cancer Society DetermiNation endurance event program, and are dedicating our training and race participation to help the American Cancer fight cancer and save lives. We are committed to doing the unthinkable, achieving what seems impossible, and changing the course of cancer forever.
You can join our team by clicking on "Join Leon's Triathlon" underneath the fundraising thermometer and receive your own website to collect donations from friends and family. If you would like to make a one-time donation, click on the red "Donate" button.
Your Gift = More Birthdays
The American Cancer Society is the only organization to fight every type of cancer, on every front in every community. Here is how your gift can help us give people who have cancer their best chance to get well:
- $25 = gives a cancer patient transportation to treatment when there is no other way.
- $50 = covers a prescription for pain and nausea medicine for a cancer patient whose only choice is to tough it out.
- $75 = can provide wigs to two women who lost their hair to chemo.
- $100 = trains someone to help hundreds of others with one-on-one support.
Every DetermiNation athlete has their own personal motivation and inspiration for participating, just like every person touched by cancer has a story to tell. This is our way of fighting back against a disease that has taken too much. Please support us by selecting from the list of team members below and making a donation. Or if you are up for the challenge, join our team and commit to train and fundraise along with us. Together, we can help create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
