A New Sponsor for the TTT is TeamIndure. Teamindure was formed as a way for individuals to come together in a community to honor those individuals that are running their own health marathons or triathlons with long-term illness. Unlike most of us that enter an event these individuals are forced into a race without any training or experience. They are also not provided the knowledge about the distance to the thime it will take to complete their journey. For those that are fortunate to feel like they have crossed the finish line to remission or a cure, they may never know when they will be forced to start all over again. The only thing they count on is the support of their fans to get them through. If you are looking to race for a cause, contact TeamIndure and talk with them.
