Make an Online Donation to Support Team Phoenix
Since its successful inception in 2011, 37 women have participated in Team Phoenix – a goal-directed fitness program open to breast cancer patients and survivors within the Aurora Health Care system. Members of Team Phoenix train for a sprint distance triathlon to encourage adoption of healthy lifestyle behaviors to ultimately improve their prognosis and quality of life.
Team Phoenix is already gearing up to make this year's triathlon even more of a success. Last year we saw participation double over 2011 (our debut year), and planning and recruitment is underway to grow Team Phoenix even larger.
The 2013 Athleta Iron Girl Women's Triathlon on Sunday, August 11 in Pleasant Prairie will once again call upon the help of dozens of caregivers and volunteers, as well as the generosity of corporate sponsors and individuals. These courageous women have battled cancer and now need support, as they train for and compete in their first-ever triathlon. Your gift will help pay for registration, professional coaching, lifeguards, lectures on nutrition, equipment and facility rentals, and bike transport.
