TRI-ing for a Cause: The Mark Felice Childhood Cancer Fund by AnnMarie - over 5 years ago
"Float the Swim, Walk the Bike, Crawl the Walk! On June 8, 2008, my mom, sister, and I competed in the Danskin Triathlon in memory of Mark Felice. He died from cancer at the age of 17 and was a dear friend to many in the photos. The Mark Felice Childhood Cancer Fund was created in his name by his family, to support those who cannot afford the medications to fight cancer. It also focuses on the needs of children and their families in the research and treatment of childhood cancers. Mark will always be remembered for his relentless courage, his optimism and loving spirit. He wished that no child would have to battle cancer as he had. We know Mark would have appreciated an athletic event to support his charity, as he was a great athlete! Other triathletes enjoyed the shirts and even wanted to buy them off our backs!
