NF Awareness: Meet Terry

Unlike the others I've introduced to you, Terry does NOT have NF. He is a wounded veteran who is now part of the NF Endurance Team. He was seriously wounded in Afghanistan in July 2010.

Click on the pic to be taken to Terry's FB Page. If you like it, let him know Alvin's Allies sent you. :)
When Terry was in high school, his Grandma passed away from breast cancer. He knew that breast cancer was a widely known disease, but he thought he could make a difference for people who's diseases aren't widely known. During his search for a cause, Children's Tumor Foundation came up.

In August 2014, Terry will be running in the Ironman North American Championship in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada. He will be doing a a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile walk! (He cannot run due to his injuries sustained in Afghanistan.) In this race, he will run for an NF child named, Grace. Like Alvin, Grace has NF and has had issues since she was a baby.

The following is a video from Terry himself explaining much more eloquently who he is, why he's doing this, etc. So, please watch the video!

Now that you've made it this far, will you take a min and donate to Terry's NF Endurance Team fund?
