Starr Tincup triathlon team completes third month of training and fund raising
Team prepares for triathlon and raises money to help fund blood cancer research, education and patient services
PR9.NET January 11, 2007 - FT. WORTH, Texas – The triathlon team representing Starr Tincup, an integrated marketing firm for business-to-business software and services companies, has completed its third month of training and fund raising for the Olympic-distance Lavaman Triathlon in Kona, Hawaii, on April 1, 2007.
The Starr Tincup triathlon team's goal is two-fold—to train for and complete the triathlon and to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and their Team in Training program. The Starr Tincup triathlon team is training and competing in the triathlon in honor of three "honored heroes," people who live in Ft. Worth, Texas, and who are battling a form of blood cancer. The team's heroes are Paula, 45, Tristen, 11, and Maura, 9. All three of the heroes have been diagnosed with Leukemia and are seeking treatment or are in remission.
"Now that we've grown accustomed to many of the physical training aspects of the triathlon, we're all turning our attention to fund raising," said Bret Starr, principal and co-founder of Starr Tincup. "Not forgetting that our goal is to raise $50,000 for the fight against blood cancers by April 1, we have a lot of work to do to get out there and raise money. Our confidence is extremely high in our ability to finish the race. Now we need to work hard at gaining that same confidence for hitting our fundraising goal."
As a whole, the team has raised more than $5,000, or about 10 percent of their goal, for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The team has continued training throughout the holiday season and is going strong into the New Year. For the past few months, physical training has been the primary concern for the team, but as 2007 begins, the team is focusing heavily on fund raising as well as training.
"We only have three months to train and raise the rest of our money. It's going to be intense," said Jennifer Starr, a member of the Starr Tincup triathlon team.
