Why I Tri
For some crazy reason I've committed to being part of Team Smiddy at the 2020 Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival.
A few days after I complete lap 44 in the race of my life, I'll be taking on a 1500m swim, 40km ride and 10km run! Yes, I'll be pushing my body, that was not built for doing a triathon, to the limit.
Why am I taking on this challenge?
13 years ago I had a melanoma on my lower back, it scared the shit out of me. Luckily for me and my family, Dr Quinn and his specialist team got it all but I live my life very aware of the risks of melanoma. Others are not so lucky and it's because of this that I'm committed to the long, hard road to fight cancer.
I have never done a triathon before but as I'm enjoying a midlife health kick I determined to do the Noosa Triathon and do it well. I'm aiming to raise a minimum of $3,000($1K for each leg of the tri) to fund ground-breaking research at Mater into the causes, prevention and treatment of various types of cancer.
And this is where I need your help. Just seeing me in Lycra has got to be at least worth a lobster ($20) so come on make a donation. I need to fit into the Lycra, do the swim, the run and then the bike ride you just need to click on the link to flick the charity some much money to save people's lives.
Will you support my fundraising by making a donation today?
