The Gunny's Team
Well gang it's that time of the year where I send out requests for your support to the National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) and Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC2) in raising funds against the fight against brain tumors.
As many of you know this is extremely personal for me but I've been one of the lucky ones. I've had two surgeries in 7 years and have been lucky enough to experience radiation in July/August of 2014 and been through two rounds of chemotherapy with the last one completed in June of 2015. I say I'm lucky because I've been able to bounce back and have competed in Half-Ironmans from Williamsburg, VA, Wilmington, NC to Augusta, GA. This year the plan is do Augusta again and currently have paid for a full Ironman in Tempe, AZ in mid-November of 2017.
Bottom-line, "The Gunny's Team" hopes you will donate to this great cause and more importantly if you can join Kristine and I on the 7th of May at Freedom Plaza we'd be excited to see you that day. Understand many of you live long distances and can't attend but appreciate any donation towards "The Gunny's Team".
