Help Ken Mikulski Jr. Cure Cancer!
Feb 13, 2011
On May 1st, I will compete in my first triathlon - the St. Anthony’s Triathlon in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Over the next 4 months, I will be training for three sports and raising funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
Already, I've seen first-hand how the funds we are raising make a difference in people’s lives....
One of our honored heroes, Rico Mercado, has Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and the medicine he is taking is funded by LLS. Each day I go to practice, I know the funds we raise are helping Rico fight this disease.
Why am I doing this?
1. I want to find a cure for cancer.
2. I want to get in shape.
3. I want to find a cure for cancer.
4. I want to look good naked.
5. I want to find a cure for cancer.
What is a triathlon?
I will be doing an Olympic distance triathlon that will consist of:
- .93 mile swim
- 24.8 mile bike
- 6.2 mile run
What makes this even more challenging is:
- I was never on the swim team!
- I have not ridden a bike in 20 years.
- I run like I’m dragging a piano.
So needless to say it is going to take some work to turn this guy:
….into this guy:
Please help me fight against blood cancers by donating to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
