Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults
This isn't your ordinary triathlon. The Half Full Triathlon is a 70-mile fight for young adult cancer support. We are making a statement about cancer and we need your help. We chose the distance of 70 Miles versus the more well know 70.3 Mile distance for this race for one important reason.
• 70,000 is the estimated # of young adults diagnosed with cancer each year
This is a statistic that needs people’s attention. The Half Full Tri will help make the young adult cancer issue a priority and together we can improve the 70,000 statistic. Every Mile you race you're helping support this population of young people battling cancer.
Triathletes ranging in age from 20-50
Anyone affected by cancer!
What do we know about them that will help us?
Triathlon is an individual sport and we are looking to ask these athletes to become a part of something bigger….The Fight against cancer.
What is the main thought we need to communicate?
The Half Full Tri will help make the young adult cancer issue a priority and together we can improve the 70,000 statistic.
