Kevin, New Jersey
Competed with TeamEdith in his first triathlon for his wife, Tracy, now facing breast cancer for the second time.
My wife, Tracy, was diagnosed in August of 2008, just one and a half months after giving birth to our second and last child, Keva. The news was shocking to say the least. Most of the times were low. She had a double mastectomy. The chemo was brutal and hit her hard. And with an infant, times were extremely difficult. After chemo, she was clear for about one and a half years. She had reconstruction surgery. Then, it returned, to our dismay, and she is facing treatment again.
She has fought this head on and has been strong all the way through. People say to me, “Congratulations on competing in a triathlon, I could never do that,” and I think to myself the triathlons are easy compared to what my wife has endured.
My ultimate goal is to raise funds that will help research to find a cure for this terrible disease.

Annie, North Dakota
Finished a half marathon in honor of her breast cancer patients.
I am a physician assistant at the Roger Maris Cancer Center in Fargo, N.D., where I treat breast cancer patients almost daily. I ran the Fargo Marathon in honor of the strong women I see. My significant other, Justin, ran in honor of his mother, who was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer several years ago. We finished the race holding hands and the next day, he asked me to marry him! We hope to run more races in honor of those close to us who are impacted by breast cancer as part of TeamEdith.
Runs marathons in honor of his girlfriend, a breast cancer survivor, and women everywhere.
My girlfriend is a survivor of breast cancer. I really wanted to run for her and support breast cancer research. I know her greatest fear is that the cancer will come back. She lives on a cloud of uncertainty, but my presence on TeamEdith gives her some solace. It helps her know there's someone with her.
Running for a cause as important as breast cancer research gives you extra motivation–it gives you a little extra push and brings your running to another level.
Women Uniting Against Breast Cancer, South Dakota
United more than 100 women and men from the community to contribute and commit to progress.
In August 2014, 106 women and 3 men, all friends, agreed to join together and personally invest in helping to find a cure for breast cancer. Ten days and more than $13,000 later, a local Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Endowment began…that’s collective power with punch! And, we’re still at it today—cheering, racing, wearing pink, learning, walking, running, swimming, biking, donating, encouraging, skipping, and shouting at the top of our lungs: “We will not rest until a cure is found!” We’re TeamEdith in Sioux Falls S.D., Women Uniting Against Breast Cancer.
Raced a half marathon in memory of her close friend, Barbra, who was taken too soon.
I lost a dear friend to breast cancer in 2013. Through TeamEdith, I can honor her memory, while also helping advance innovative research to help end this disease.
Edith Sanford has heart and I want to continue raising awareness for their mission in the Phoenix area.
I know that through each dollar raised, and every person reached, we are truly making a difference.
