With my sincerest thanks, I want you to know how much I appreciate you and all of the time you put into the Tri for a Cure. Your fundraising efforts are top notch; unmatched by any other group of women around! It is truly a tremendous accomplishment to be proud of. As the new Events Director, thank you for making my first Tri for a Cure such an incredible experience as well. I’ve enjoyed getting to know you and am happy to have found so many friends in the Maine Cancer Foundation family. I look forward to seeing you again at our next event!
Thanks so much for all you do!
Thank you so much for being with us at the 2015 Tri for a Cure! You all made it such a wonderful, inspiring, heartfelt event! I knew that the power of so many strong women in one place would not allow the weather gods to ruin our day! If this was your first triathlon or your eighth, I hope that it was a life changing experience. See you next year.......... July 17, 2016!
Tri for a Cure
We had a remarkable group of over 500 volunteers working with us during Race week-end. Some were from Maine, some from out of state, and some from other countries as far away as Estonia. I believe our youngest volunteer this year was 13, and I don’t know for sure but I am pretty confident we had a couple octogenarians in the group! The jobs our volunteers do, from wet-suit stripping, to serving food, to parking cars, to medical support, to assuring athlete safety, all make this race possible. It may sound over-used, but it’s really true. This couldn’t happen without you.
On Sunday, more more than 1300 women joined us to swim, bike and run for the Tri for a Cure. Despite a rainy start, the passion and excitement was visible on every face.
Our day was full of thrills, watching the first wave of cancer survivors dive into Portland Harbor, bike through the hills and marshes of Cape Elizabeth, and finally run along South Portland's lighthouse-dotted shoreline. The real joy came at the finish line, where we saw so many triathletes join hands with friends and family to complete the last few steps together.
