Tri for a Cure eyes $1.75 million goal for 10th anniversary

Last summer, the Maine Cancer Foundation raised a whopping $1.6 million during the Tri for a Cure, the foundation’s largest fundraiser.

But race officials believe that number can be surpassed later this month, when the all-women’s triathlon in South Portland celebrates its 10th birthday.

“We’re hoping to get to 1.75 million this year,” said Kristen Smith, Director of Community Engagement for the Maine Cancer Foundation.

Over 1,300 women are expected to congregate at Southern Maine Community College in South Portland on July 23 for the sprint triathlon, which features a one-third-mile ocean swim, a 15-mile biking segment and a 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) run.

Tri for a Cure raises $2 million to fight cancer
An estimated 1,300 participants compete in the all-women triathlon to support the Maine Cancer Foundation

... She paused before adding in a shaky voice, “I mean, I know she was with me.”

Jordan finished antibiotic treatments last month and is now in remission.

She said the Tri for a Cure was a healing experience for her family, which could be spotted on the sidelines in matching pink “Team Jordan” T-shirts. Her dad’s lip quivered, fighting tears, while discussing how proud he was of Jordan.

“I had the two worst events of my life followed by the best experience I’ve ever had,” Jessica said. “This is to ensure that somebody doesn’t have to go through what I went through. It’s so a mother and a daughter don’t have to spend their best days together going into treatment.”
