NYC Triathlon 2017 - A New Challenge

Third time in the Hudson, let's go crazy this time around!
May 11, 2017

TEAM IN TRAINING FOR THE WIN!

 

As most of you know, I do these crazy things called triathlons where I subject my body for several hours of pain, sweltering heat, and chaffing….often lots of chaffing. This July 16th I will be embarking on my third NYC Triathlon expedition and willingly flinging myself into the pristine waters of the Hudson, riding up the marble pavement West Side Highway, and dragging my (by that time half melted body) through the winding slopes of Central Park.

 

To make this year’s race a bit more meaningful, I am captaining a team at Morgan Stanley and working with Team in Training to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

 

Unfortunately, we have all likely known someone affected by that sh*tty thing called cancer. Two years ago I raced with TnT in honor of a childhood friend who was diagnosed with Leukemia in the 6th grade. Luckily he was able to beat cancer and now lives a healthy life. However, not everyone is as fortunate. TnT has raised over $1 Billion for the LLS since it was started and hearing the stories and what has been accomplished with these funds is truly amazing. That’s why this year I wanted to up the ante by captaining a team at MS and crush previous fundraising goals by myself and MS.

 

Whether it is one of the blood cancers which the LLS directly works to eradicate, or any another type which is equally as sh*tty, undoubtedly we have all had our own experiences with this awful illness. And that is why I would humbly like to ask you to join in and help me give a big F*** YOU TO CANCER by donating towards my race in support of the LLS.

 

Please consider giving as much or as little as you can. Honestly, albeit a bit cliché, every dollar helps. And to add a special bonus. I am auctioning off a part of my body. Yes, that’s right, you can be the proud (temporary) owner of a piece of my chiseled body for the duration of the race and choose what you want have displayed on it. The highest donator (not that it’s a competition and I will love you no matter how much you donate), will be awarded this highly coveted prize.

 

Thanks in advance for your generosity

- Jarrod
