(Sioux Falls, SD) – The Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation has partnered with premier event and race organizer DelMoSports Inc. to expand opportunities for athletes to support Edith Sanford’s cutting-edge genomic research.
“We’re thrilled to join forces with DelMoSports in advancing our bold, comprehensive approach to ending breast cancer,” said Kimberly Simpson, president of the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation. “This partnership opens the door for athletes on the East Coast to support our mission while participating in amazing events.”
This year, as a result of the collaboration with Stephen Del Monte, founder and promoter of DelMoSports Inc., athletes will be eligible for exclusive benefits and discounts when they register for DelMoSports triathlons as members of TeamEdith, Edith Sanford’s new athlete engagement platform. Along with receiving 50 percent off the registration fee for prestigious triathlon events, athletes can receive TeamEdith athletic shirts and hooded sweatshirts as a thank-you from Edith Sanford, which they can wear while they train, fundraise and compete.
“Stephen has really gone all out to promote TeamEdith and make it easy for athletes to support a great cause while they enjoy these triathlon events,” said Gary Hall, Jr., former Olympian and sports marketing director for the Foundation. “He’s providing a great platform for TeamEdith to thrive and excel, while building momentum for our cause.”
Launched earlier this summer, TeamEdith promotes and encourages healthy lifestyles, and gives its team members a variety of opportunities and incentives to raise funds in support of Edith Sanford’s mission. One hundred percent of every dollar raised is invested in advancing breast cancer research.
“Edith Sanford puts 100 percent of every dollar toward finding the cures for breast cancer—that makes this partnership a no-brainer for DelMoSports,” said Del Monte. “When TeamEdith participants cross the finish line, they’ll know they’ve also contributed to a lifesaving cause.”
Del Monte created DelMoSports Inc. with the goal of having not only elite triathlon races, but also fun and unique events based on the East Coast. These events provide thousands of participants a variety of activities including safe ocean swims, closed bike courses, beach and boardwalk runs, breakfast buffets on the beach, massive prize giveaways, face painting for children, touchscreen results, live entertainment and finisher medals.
Partnership events this year include the 10th Annual Tri the Wildwoods Triathlon & 5K in North Wildwood, N.J. on Aug. 17 and the 3rd Annual Atlantic City International and Sprint Distance Triathlons in Atlantic City, N.J. on Sept. 15.
