Tracy Landeryou: Tri for a Cure

2017 is the 10th annual Tri for a Cure, and my 5th time participating in this event.  This year I have yet again set a very lofty fundraising goal of $20,000 for Maine Cancer Foundation.  I am proud to say that while I did not quite hit that goal last year, I raised $18,600 with the help of many donors!  In my 4 years of participating in this event I have raised nearly $70,000 in the fight against cancer.  Many of you know I lost my dad, Wes Jordan, to pancreatic cancer in 2002………I can’t believe that in a little over a month it will be 15 years since his passing.  I miss him every day, and I carry him with me every day in the locket I wear around my neck, and I carry him with me every Tri for a Cure.  During the run, which is the toughest part of a triathlon for me, I carry with me a list of names of people I am racing for – many of them are survivors, like my mom; some of them are battling the disease; and some of them have passed on to a better place, free of the horrible disease of cancer.  I have vowed to do whatever I can in the fight against this disease.  The Tri for a Cure is the most unique triathlon I have ever done, and I think it is the best one out there… and it is all about the cause.  Yes, there are people that are looking to win or place in the race, but they are also racing for a cause that is very special to them.  Every woman that does this race has been touched by cancer in one way or another… some are survivors themselves, and many are racing for family and friends that have been impacted by the disease.

I need your help in the fight against cancer.  I can’t do this alone.  Every donation helps, no matter the amount.  Please consider making a donation, the link to my fundraising page is below.  The 2017 Tri for a Cure is only 6 months away!  I will send reminders out periodically.  If you do not wish to donate, please let me know and I will not include you in future reminders.  For those of you that do wish to donate, thank you in advance… and remember, many companies match donations, so check with your employer.

Have a wonderful day!  Cancer tries and I will Tri Harder!
