More Survivors Qualify for Survive, Thrive & Be Fit!

More Survivors Qualify for Survive, Thrive & Be Fit!

More Survivor-Athletes Qualify for the Survive, Thrive & Be Fit Team!

Congratulations to our two newest survivor-athletes who recently earned their spots on the 2019 Survive, Thrive & Be Fit Team: Cindy Daane & Stacy Harriott (NOTE: I mistakenly reported that Stacy Harriott had earned her spot in June instead of Stacey Hand – sorry Stacey & Stacy for the mix-up and a belated congratulations to Stacey Hand)!

Survive, Thrive & Be Fit is designed to motivate and encourage area cancer patients and survivors to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle all in a fun and supportive environment with others who are in the midst of or recovering from cancer treatment. Every time an area cancer patient/survivor participates in any of our many Survive, Thrive & Be Fit activities they earn one activity point. Once they have accumulated five activity points or more they “earn a spot” on the ST&BF team along with their ST&BF T-shirt (and the right to wear it with pride) along with the many other benefits such as new experiences, lasting memories and meaningful friendships!

January through August




Participating Survivor-Athletes




ST&BF Team Members (5+ pts)




ST&BF Team Activity Points




As you can see from the above table, we have moved ahead of last year’s total number of participating survivor-athletes as well as exceeded the total number of activity points earned as of August 31st but we are falling behind in the total number of survivor-athletes earning five points or more to qualify as team members (however, there are several survivor-athletes who are only a point or two away). If you’ve never participated in any of the many ST&BF events/activities... I hope you’ll consider joining me along with many of the current members of the ST&BF Team during the month of September, when there are plenty of opportunities being offerd!
