|Our friend Russ is racing the last of his six races in six weeks this weekend. He's doing it to help raise funds for cancer. I know cancer has touched this group very closely too many times. If you're inclined to support him, here's the scoop as Russ shared it on FB:
In the past few years, I've seen people I know fight cancer; I've seen friends lose family members to cancer; and I know people battling now. The one thing we can all agree on is that cancer is a sonofabitch of a disease that does not discriminate. So I want to do something in honor of those that are fighting, those that have fought and won, and those that have lost the battle.
I'm going to compete in 6 races in 6 weeks and raise money for two charities. It begins on September 8 - five will be triathlons and the last will be the Baltimore Half Marathon. Although I've decided that anyone who makes a donation can vote on whether I should run the half marathon or the full marathon.
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults
The V Foundation

Go, Russ, go!!
