The weather was picture perfect, sunny blue sky and 65 degrees. The warmth of the sun added to the
warmth of the energy from so many participants. With our Team, Marathon for the Cure, of 26 people there
was no question that it was a day filled with emotions and success. With a list of names on the backs of our
Team Members, walking in honor or in memory of a loved one, we found the inspiration to take each step.
Two of our Team Members, Leslie Knott and Thelie Trotty-Selzer surpassed their 8 years post cancer ‘clock’.
What a great benchmark. Both completed the 5K, Thelie on her scooter.
Each Team member was so generous and helped able to assemble a small army of donors. I am so proud of
each participant and donor. Together we are the Cure.
Participation matters. This year’s Race was named The More Than Pink Walk and exemplifies how much we
have accomplished. We collectively have helped to change the universe related to breast cancer and have
had a direct impact on members of our community.
May we serve as the hand prints on the backs of those who are facing this disease. We are on their journey
with them…they are not alone!
Thank you again for your enormous generosity and for the honor of serving as your Team Captain.
Jon N Selzer, Team Captain
