At The Finish Line . . . And Beyond: A Message For Team Sharsheret Triathletes

Just two more days until we hit the West Side Highway, the Hudson, and Central Park for the Aquaphor NYC Triathlon. Months of training, awareness-raising, and fundraising will culminate at the finish line. You’ve accomplished so much already – and our work together has only just begun! As Team Sharsheret athletes, you have become ambassadors for the work that we do – supporting families, educating communities, enhancing the care that medical providers offer their young cancer patients.

This year, we debuted a short film, “It Takes a Team”, that features our incredible athletes. Although it may not really take a team to finish the triathlon, it certainly does take a team to do all that Sharsheret does. We reach more women because of the awareness you raise. We launch more programs because of the funds you raise. Sharsheret is the product of all of our efforts.

So when you cross that finish line on Sunday, we’ll be cheering you on – for what you’ve accomplished already, and for what we will continue to do together in the months and years ahead!

Have a great race!

Right There Beside You

We're always assuring you - our Team Sharsheret athletes - that we're cheering you on to the finish line. This year, our cheers may sound a bit louder. Ellen, Elana and I will share a relay spot, and Rebecca of our staff will compete in the Triathlon this Sunday. Literally and figuratively, we are doing this together - raising awareness about breast cancer in the Jewish community and welcoming hundreds of new friends to the Sharsheret family. We are grateful that you've chosen to be a part of our Team, and even more grateful that you've chosen to be a part of our mission. On Sunday, when you look around and marvel at all that you've accomplished through training, I hope our thanks, and the gratitude of the thousands of women and families we are blessed to serve, gives you that added push to the finish line. We're cheering you on. And we're right there beside you.

With deep thanks,
Rochelle
